Montjuic Castle Reviews
Took a bus to the top and walked back to arena shopping mall. A good historical place to visit. Nice views and a good opportunity to take pictures. Cafe was extremely busy, had to wait for 30minutes..... more »
It’s ok but not so good as it was projected. Yes if you are keen castle visitors than you can but be prepared for disappointment 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.
