Parc de Montjuic - a hill in Barcelona

We went to Parc de Montjuic, a hill in Barcelona. It's a park with great views of the rest of the city, a castle/fort, a bunch of museums, a botanical garden - in general a very nice place to visit. Getting there was a short metro ride and a transfer to the funicular that is part of the Metro; there is also a cable car from the harbor.

The fort had various cannons at strategic places.  There were some archers practicing - presumably not part of the military. One of the pictures below has General Robert in his "Pentagon" office looking over the city.  One of the museums is the Joan Miro museum which was well worth visiting. We went to the botanical garden and looked into the Olympic Museum (1992 Summer Olympics).
