We walked up to the castle & took the cable car down. It was a tough but rewarding climb, incredible views from the top, across Barcelona. The cable car ride also offered great views. Would recommend doing it the other way round.

Do not walk, take bus 150 from Plaza Espagna. An impressive info about the Civil War and dark days of Spain. On a much lighter note: if you want to understand the Spain and how diverse its culture is (Spanish, Catalunian, Basque or Galician) watch...More
