Montjuïc Segway Tour - Barcelona
Why this tour?
This Segway tour will take you through the history of Barcelona, which began at the green mountain of Montjuïc, located just outside the city center, over 2000 years ago.
Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from the top of its 173 meters, its name comes from the Jewish medieval cemetery that is located on its northeast side. Montjuïc is also home to the castle, which can be reached by cable car and was built on top of the hill in 1751. It was built on top of the hill in 1751 and was used to defend the city and watch over its inhabitants. Strangely enough, the fortress of Montjuïc is a complement to the Ciutadella, whose remains we visit at the very beginning of this Segway tour.

Montjuïc has been the epicenter of the cultural and political development of Barcelona and its previous communities. The archaeological ruins of the Laietani tribe, dating back to 300 BC, were discovered at the foot of the hill, making it one of the first founding communities of the region.
The castle, which can be accessed by cable car, was built on the summit in 1751. The castle served as a defense for the city but also to control its population. Curiously, the fortress of Montjuïc complimented the citadel whose remains in the Parc de la Ciutadella we also visit at the beginning of the tour.
The modern history of Montjuïch is no less interesting than its past. Many of Barcelona's main sites are located on its slopes, many of which will be visited during this tour "outside" the city.
For example, some of the sports complexes from the 1992 Olympic Games; the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium, the Sant Jordi Palace and the Olympic Museum are located on the hill.
The MNAC - National Art Museum of Catalonia - and the Joan Miró Foundation are also among the many attractions.
What else will you see?
There is no need to describe how beautiful the sunset is from the terrace of one of the many chiringuito's there, a great experience to share with friends or family.
In addition to Montjuïch and the Parc-De-La-Ciutadella, the tour also includes part of the Port Vell: the oldest part of Barcelona's seafront and the monument to Christopher Columbus that marks the end of the famous Las Ramblas street.
