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 ratingHighlight of our Weekend! Book up, you will not be disappointed!

    This was, without doubt, the highlight of our weekend break in Barcelona. Unfortunately a few days before Our trip, we were contacted to advise that our tour guide had an emergency and would we consider switching to the 3hr tour for the same price... of course we would like to! And we did not regret our decision.

  • 5 star ratingBelle expérience Federico nous a rapidement enseigné l'art de tenir debout sur l'engin et le circuit a été parcouru sans encombre ni chute grâce à sa prévenance. On apprécie le déplacement rapide et sans effort. La concentration sur le parcours empêche un peu d'admirer tout sur le passage mais le guide réalise les photos souvenir aux meilleurs endroits.

  • 5 star ratingThe Best and Only Way to See Barcelona I have done Segway tours in three cities now. Austin (Texas), Paris and now Barcelona. Without a shadow of a doubt, Barcelona is the best city for Segway tours, especially if you are short of time. Reason being there is so much distance to cover and so much to see. Walking and public transport will take you forever and cycling is a viable alternative (although not the best for those... » Read More

  • 5 star ratingExcellent! Very professional and knowledgeable guide!

    Segways are easy to learn and fun to do for a long time.

  • 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 ratingMaravillosa experiencia Profesionalidad al 100%, he realizado tours en Segway en otras ciudades y es el mejor con diferencia! Nos estaban esperando a la llegada, nos han atendido de maravilla antes, durante y después del recorrido. Además de la ruta en segway te hacen una mini guía por la zona que visitas. Muy, muy recomendable!

  • 5 star ratingSegway tour with Lisa We had a great Segway experience! Lisa was a wonderful teacher en tourguide. The way she explained how to use the Segway was great. She guided us through Barcelona very safely and told a lot of interesting things along the way. Thank you Lisa (and colleague) for this great experience!
