Montjuïc

December 15, 2010

Above the city is Montjuïc, or Hill of the Jews (when Jews were in good standing there, I assume).  There is a beautiful park, National Museum, the Poble Espanyol (a Spanish village representing the different buildings of Spain with artists, shops, cafes), the Olympic Stadium (built for the an alternative to the Berlin ’36 Olympics, but not used due to the Spanish Civil War. It was the site of the ’92 Olympics), and more. It overlooks the city and is a great way to spend a day.
