Montjuic Castle Reviews
Part of the castle was closed for our visit but this didn’t spoil our enjoyment. It was a nice walk from the Olympic Park and the views were spectacular. It was also free on the day of our visit... more »
We didn’t enter the castle but enjoyed the walk up from the centre of Barcelona. The walk is very scenic and has so many sights to see along the way. Worth the visit if in Barcelona. more »
Unfortunately the cable cars to the castle were not open due to high winds :( , which was a little disappointing as I am sure this would have added to enormously to our visit, but the castle itself is magnificent and reading the well listed out information boards really gave you a details insight into the significance of this monument to the history of Catalonia and Spain. Well worth a visit during any visits to Barcelona.
Beautiful place to view the sunset. Entry fee is very cheap. There is a cafe inside . The place was a fortress formerly. One side you can view the whole wide coast and the other the city view. Highly recommended, evenings after 6 would be a better bet.
