If you are visiting Barcelona, come to the Parc de Montjuïc, called de Magic Mountain of Barcelona and cosidered one of the best green places in the city. You will find the Archaeological Museum of Catalonia, a place of memory that invites you to discover our earliest history and enjoy the best archaeological pieces found in Catalonia and its environment. All in a relaxing space where we respected the architecture of one of the ancient palaces of the International Exhibition of 1929, the Palace of Graphic Arts.
Once you have visited to the Archaeological Museum you can walk through Poble-Sec, one of the most bohemian neighborhoods in the city, multicultural and full of artists. You will enjoy the lifelong wineries or go "tapas" by Blai street terraces.
