    The 1929 World's Fair was very important for Barcelona, and above all for the mountain of Montjuïc, because many important town planning works were created. One of the pavilions, the German one, still remains here. It is the Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion rebuilt in 1985 due to popular claim. The building is considered a jewel & a paradigm of Contemporary Architecture. Inside there is the 'Barcelona chair' also designed by Mies Van Der Rohe.

    But the Montjuïc mountain is not only famous for the Olympic facilities. In fact, it is more important for having some of the most interesting museums and facilities in town. This is the entrance to the Montjuïc mountain through Plaça Espanya and the Venetian towers. The Fira de Barcelona (Barcelona's Fair) is located here since 1929. It is one of the most important Fairs in Europe. The Barcelona Congress Palace was also placed here.

    Montjuïc, or Hill of the Jews, is the site of the 1992 Olympics. You can take the metro or a bus to this area. In addition to the Olympic area, sites of interest include the Poble Espanyol (Spanish Village), museums, the Palau Nacional (National Palace), and the Castell de Montjuïc (Montjuïc Castle). This picture is a view of the port from the hill.

    For a fabulous view of Barcelona, visit Montjuic (The Hill of the Jews). In 1992 the Olympic stadium was built here (carefully screening the Jewish cemetery that gives the hill its name).

    It's worth going there for the stroll and the Miro foundation (modern art museum).

    MONTJUIC is the most important recreational area in Barcelona - an oasis of calm and nature in the middle of the urban agglomeration.
