All reviews cable car military museum paral lel funicular railway metro ticket great views of barcelona olympic stadium port area interesting history mediterranean sea walk up entrance fee small museum return ticket breathtaking views worth the trip sunny day
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.
Recently visited the castle unexpectedly from doing the red route bus tour and had a fab time. We paid a little extra for the tour guide and access to areas not open to the public; the dungeons and tower. Our guide Marie Paz (not sure...More
Historic Beautiful castle that shows not only an in-depth view into Barcelona’s past but provides an incredible view over the current metropolis below. The cable car ride up there it’s also great for any one, at any age.
We went up here for the views but it proved to be a very interesting visit. Quite a bloody history of violence against your own country men is recorded here. The views are great even on a cloudy rainy day. Take the cable car up...More
We travelled here by the metro,funicular railway and then by cable car which were all very enjoyable with the latter transport providing fabulous views of the city and port areas.Then for a very reasonable 5 euros each we entered the castle which again provided even...More
It is a nice place, You can see old castle (not medieval, rather modern), it is localizated on the hill, good point is to climb over there, You can also go by metro, and then climb by a special tram (we were with liitle kid,...More
The best reason to come here is the views. They are spectacular (perhaps the best in Barcelona), over City one side and the port the other.
Castle is nice too and there is a visitor centre but the exhibits and info are not the best....More
Decided to walk up the hill to Montjuic Castle and other attractions on the way. U can get a cable car ride but it's a nice walk up the hill and not challenging.
Nice gardens, trees, water features and other attractions to see on the...More
Very nice castle with a good view. It was cheap to get inside, and it was very good to walk around just for as long as you wanted. I wish everyone could go and see the view from the watchtower. We paid €3 to go...More
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
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
