Have you been to Montjuïc, Barcelona ?

Barcelona.

Everywhere we go, we sometimes need a short nature escape.

In Barcelona, you can find this at the hill-top of “Montjuic” which overlooks the harbour. Surrounded by greenery, and a site that is so fresh and clean brings peace into you. You can do some sports there if you wish to jog, run or walk.

You will get to see the castle of Montjuic that dates back to the 17th contrary. The castle used to be a prison for politicians and later was used for executions.

In the evening, you can look for the light and music show at the Magic Fountain of Montjuic which I heard should not be missed. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to watch the show, but hopefully I will do that on my next visit. 🙂

Barcelona, Spain

Another irresistible sunny day, where me and my bubbly cousin decided to take the day off and bike to the Bogatell beach area for a quick tan before we head towards Montjuic for a sunset view only to realize that the sun sets from the other mountain side which is where the Tibidabo is. Nonetheless, Montjuic is worth a full day for it is one incredibly huge park that is just filled with magical nature, and for the love of nature, you do need a little nature self time every once in a while. I also probably haven’t mentioned this before in my posts, but my best advice for all those who are planning to visit Barcelona is to rent a bicycle as soon as you arrive. Getting around is very easy and it becomes so much easier and much more fun by bicycle.

A great folk song for you today by The deep dark woods, All the money I had is gone.
