Parc del Mirador del Migdia

If you want to get an exceptional view of Barcelona, Mirador del Migdia is one of the best places for that. And, for anyone keen on walking, the park is full of paths that allow you to take a stroll on the south side of Montjuïc.

The landscaping has made this park look more like a wood than a garden. It is fully exposed to the sun so the light there is intense, while zigzagging paths climb up and down the sloping ground, joining the mirador-balconies with their magnificent panoramic view of Barcelona.
This a very good park for walking or spending a relaxing day in, with its large picnic area shaded by pine trees and a bar for contemplating some exceptional sunsets.

History

Mirador del Migdia occupies one of the last sectors still awaiting to be developed at the end of the 20th century on the southern slope of Montjuïc. The park was planned at the same time as the 199 Games Olympic Ring, which is also on the mountain.

Biodiversity

So, Parc del Mirador del Migdia abounds in Aleppo pines (Pinus halepensis) and stone pines (Pinus pinea), holm oaks (Quercus ilex) and cypresses (Cupressus sempervirens). It also boasts olive trees (Olea europaea), acacias (Robinia pseudoacacia) and eucalyptus trees (Eucalyptus globulus), common ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior), poplars (Populus nigra italica), tipu trees (Tipuana tipu) and Judas trees (Cercis siliquastrum).
Montjuïc has lots of prickly pear trees (Opuntia ficus-indica) and broom (Spartium junceum), and this park is a good example of that. Oleanders (Nerium oleander), great lovers of the sun, grow luxuriantly in many parts of the park. There are quite a few palm trees too, in particular a very long row of Canary Island date palms (Phoenix canariensis) that skirts around the park, offering an impressive view of Barcelona.

Landscaping and Design

It lies at one end of a series of parks and gardens covering Montjuïc, between the Zona Franca and the Marina del Port and Poble-sec neighbourhoods. Heading towards Poble-Sec the first you come across, next to Parc del Mirador del Migdia, is the Jardí Botànic, or the Botanical Gardens. Next is the new part of the Tres Pins nursery, followed by the Jardins de Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer and the Jardins de Joan Brossa, with the Jardins del Mirador de l’Alcalde just above. This makes for a good excursion which is has even more appeal if you do it the other way: starting from Mirador de l’Alcalde and finishing with a good picnic at Mirador del Migdia.

  • 5 star ratingWe enjoyed every minute and wanted more! We're a family of 5 (parents + 3 teens) and chose "Barcelona Sun & Segway" a little by chance - simply because they had a great rating and because you can book via WhatsApp, which is very convenient when you don't have a local phone line but only data. Kudos for that! We were not disappointed - on the contrary; we arrived early, not having had time for lunch, so... » Read More

  • 5 star ratingGreat time and introduction to Barcelona We were on a cruise and only in Barcelona for the day. It was about a 45 minute walk from the port but very doable. Our guide, Lisa, gave us a great personalized tour showing us all the highlights. We hope to return to Barcelona in the not too distant future and do the Segway tour to Montserrat.

  • 5 star ratingSegway Barcelona 2019 It was my first segway experience and it was perfect! A great time i had in Barcelona. The guide Oriol was very good in guiding you how to navigate the segway and also was detailed in explaining the history behind the places he brought us to during the one hour tour. Will definitely return to them again when i travel to Barcelona again in future!

  • 5 star ratingEsperienza fantastica Siamo stati qui per un tour di un'ora e mezza in segway a avevamo il bambino di 8 anni a cui hanno dato una bici per seguirci. La nostra guida Federico è stato fantastico, competente, dettagliato nello spiegare, simpatico e ci spiegava veramente tutto. Un vero appassionato della città. Noi vi consigliamo vivamente di usufruire del suo servizio. Grazie mille Federico un abbraccio. Tatiana, Goffredo e Aaron Più
