Parc de Montjuïc


Parc Montjuïc

Parc de Montjuïc is one of Barcelona’s more notable hills.

Covering over 450 hectares, this is a privileged space that combines a diverse range of aspects such as leisure, business activity, culture, sport and nature. Worth noting is its value as a natural space, given that it constitutes the city’s main park, after the Collserola. 

When it comes to mobility, the Parc Montjuïc Unit manages the escalators, made up of 22 sections that join Avinguda Maria Cristina with La Recta de l’Estadi. They are used by thousands of people, as they bridge a difference in height of 52 metres. 

The escalators’ usual operating times are from 7 am to 12 midnight, except on days when events are held at Parc Montjuïc. 

The Unit is also tasked with coordinating initiatives to minimise the impact on daily life in the Park as well as notifying operators of any incidents that may cause accessibility and mobility problems. 

The Unit carries out daily inspections at Parc de Montjuïc to detect any type of eventuality, whether from the operators themselves or in maintenance: broken lamps, fused lights, raised paving stones, fallen pylons, paving in poor condition etc. 

The Parc de Montjuïc Unit consists of an inspection team of six civic officers who collect evidence of incidents with photographs and locate them on a map that conveys information to the municipal operator responsible for resolving such incidents. 

Other tasks carried out by the Unit include monitoring of public works, initiatives with the Guàrdia Urbana relating to abandoned vehicles and monitoring of homeless individuals alongside Sants-Montjuïc’s Social Services and District. 

In addition, it also is tasked with managing two information points that offer visitors specific information on Parc de Montjuïc and merchandising.
