Rising up like a green lung from a city crammed with concrete and asphalt, Montjuic is a haven of tranquility – and a great destination for a Barcelona bike tour.
Verdant acres of trees, plants and lush grass blanket the hill that is home to the city's preeminent Olympic facilities and a stoic castle that looks out over the azure Mediterranean expanse. The multi-colored cascades of water at Font Magica, or Magic Fountain, punctuate Montjuic´s northern flank.

"Majesty" is a good way to describe what Montjuic has to offer.
Sweeping views of the Mediterranean to the east and the mountains to the west will embrace you as you stand atop the emerald hill.
Your ascent to the top of Montjuic will take place through some of Barcelona´s more interesting modes of transportation.
You´ll take the metro to a funicular, which will ascend halfway up the side of the hill.
At the end of the ride, you´ll exit the funicular and step into a gondola that will rise above the lush gardens of Montjuic a glide toward the top of the mountain where you'll take in marvelous views before coasting down the "Green Lung" on your high-quality, top-of-the-line Dahon folding bike.
Before heading down the hill, you'll visit Montjuic´s fortress. Set foot on ground that´s seen the surly sins of two despots loathed by many in Spain: Napolean and Francisco Franco. Learn about the fortress' dubious history as you walk through its stone-lined halls.
Montjuic´s fabled flanks offer more history as you cruise down winding roads to the Olympic Ring, the collection of sites built for the 1992 Summer Olympic Games.
Sunlight will warm you as you pedal to several of the sporting facilities that made the city´s Olympics one of the most memorable in history.
