We were really excited to visit the castle and trekked up the hill to get there, but sadly it was closing 40 minutes after we arrived due to a strike. That's fair enough, but it would have been great to have a warning placed further...More

If you want unrivaled views of Barcelona city, the port, the Mediterranean and south to the airport this is definitely the place. You can catch a bus, spend time walking, although it involves lots of stairs and wooded slopes or take an escalator from Palau...More

Panoramic view from the castle, easy to get there from Paralel metro station ( Green L3 Line) and you get the telepherique that takes you to the top. If someone has time, it is nice to return on foot at least till the middle stop.

Nice fort with great views of Barcelona! Only 5 euros entrance fee, but it's well worth a visit. You can go by foot from the bottom of the hill or by cable car.
