Not far, there is a magnificent modernist building that is home to the Caixa Forum, where you can admire top quality works and exhibitions free of charge.
Continue and lose yourself among the architecture and stores of the Poble Espanyol hamlet, where its alleys and ancient atmosphere transform this place into a meeting point for concerts and local displays; after sunset, some lively nightclubs brighten up the evening.
A few steps away, you'll be amazed at the famous sports complex, the Olympic Circle: the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Gallery (the museum dedicated to the Olympics) and the Palau Sant Jordi cupola. A group of extraordinary structures built for the 1992 Olympics that neighbor the splendid Nou Jardi Botànic.
Walking through these green areas, you'll be struck by the geometry and works of Fundació Joan Mirò, both of which are the work of the genius of one of the people who most influenced culture in the last century; with the direct cable car to Castello de Montjuïc, you'll finally enjoy the extraordinary view of Barcelona and the surrounding sea.
