- Your journey of Barcelona begins with a panoramic drive up Montjuic, a hill named after the Jewish community that once lived on its slopes. Today it is the site of the Olympic Stadium and Spanish Village and home to the Miro Foundation. On the downhill drive you'll find streets lined with elegant shops and beautiful buildings along with the Plaza d'Espana and the old bullring now used for political rallies and theater performances. On Barcelona's main thoroughfare, Avenida Diagonal, you'll get your first glimpse of the city's most eccentric landmark - Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, left unfinished after his death in 1926. Pause for a photograph of the church or buy a postcard of this strikingly surreal structure. As you are on your back to the ship, you'll see the Olympic Village and the new marina.
