Montjuic Castle is free on the first Sunday of every month and every Sunday after 3pm. We went after 3pm, and I'm glad it was free because it definitely wasn't worth the ticket price. Provides a nice view of the sea and city. Not a...More

Tickets were not too expensive and we enjoyed the view. We used bus to get here. It was easy but very full of people.

Nice views of Barcelona when walking around. Interesting knowledge about the turbulent times which the castle and the people living in Barcelona had to cope with.

Montjuic Castle is worth a visit. Been there several times, you can reach it by bus and the cable car. It's a great place with amazing views and temporary museums. The history of the castle is described in every corner, making it easy for you...More

Everyone who visits Barcelona should go here. No need to buy a ticket ahead of time. 5 Euro entry fee and it is worth it just for the views of the harbor and the city. The history of the Castle/Fort was interesting. It is a...More

This place has got a fair walk and to find the cable car is not the easiest. We took the cable car up as we thought it would save time but the walk wouldn't have taken much longer. Once at the top there is an...More

There are a few small lockers to store items in, but they fit backpacks, not suitcases. I don’t think they’ll let you carry/roll it around with you. Also, to get there you will either take a taxi/bus, walk up a steep hill... 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
