We loved the views, and, on a bank hol (24th) it was free, which we loved even more. Our tip - the walk from the funicular is pretty strightforward, but, if lazy, get the 150 bus...don't bother with the cable car

This place is a must see on the list when you in Barcelona. Very good price only €10 per person. Including a tour. With a tour you can get to places which is not available for a public. Great history. And the views are just...More

We went there during second week of September. So it’s not busy. Nice view. You can take the cable car to the top and walk down or the cable car both ways.

We went up to the castle by cable car which was fun. The castle is empty but has great views of the city.

This castle was pretty cool! Well worth the €10 entry as it has some pretty spectacular views. It was very easy to get to by bus which drops you pretty much at the door. I would recommend a visit. We spent about an hour there.

4 of us visited this castle beginning September 2018. As with all castles they are on a hill, so transport is recommended to reach the top and the drawbridge. Outside the gardens there are a few small stalls set up selling jewellery, scarves, etc. Its...More

There are two places that you can leave luggage right in the city, this one is very near to Catalunya so if you're taking the bus (T1/2) its a great option: Locker Barcelona & Happy Luggage Barcelona
