How to get to the Palau Sant Jordi

There are different ways to go up to the Palau Sant Jordi. Visitors should be aware that the Palau Sant Jordi is a bit hidden and it is easy to pass by, without seeing it. However, you must follow the same directions as described for getting the Olympic Stadium Lluís Companys or to the Olympic Park in Montjuic, and keep in mind that between the Olympic Stadium and the Palau Sant Jordi, there is a distance of less than 150 meters in straight line.

However, the tourist bus has a line which stops at the Olympic Park of Barcelona. From Spain Square (Plaça d’Espanya) there are several bus lines that go up the mountain of Montjuic and stops at the Olympic Stadium.
