Look at the reviews carefully - many are talking about Barcelona's castle of the same name! Great ruins to go and wander around in. A steep 40 minute walk from the cathedral. We spent about 45 minutes exploring the ruins. All free so no money needed.

The castle doesn't have a lot in it however has a lot of history attached to it. For 2 adults, 1 under 30 and 2 children we paid 13 Euros (about £11) so great value and we used an online guide we found for the castle. You can sit and while away the time with views over the sea and city. Well worth a visit.

We took a taxi up to the castle. Couldn’t work out all the cable car options. The castle was our favourite thing to do in Barcelona. Excellent fun for the kids. Lovely views and places for kids to go hide in. Cafe for drinks and light meals. Afterwards we took the walking trails around the castle and then down through the various gardens back to town. So lovely and a positive environment. Unlike most of the tourist areas in town which we did not enjoy in the least.

We found our way up Montjuic by funicula and cable car - interesting in their own right. A short walk from the Teleferic we came across a cobbled way to the neoclassical gateway of Castell de Montjuic. Its a low level large construction with a later added watchtower. The builders had to install two sun dials as their construction did not allow all day accuracy so there is one to the east and one to the west. The castle was designed to protect barcelona first from attack by land and later from the sea. There are wcs once you have paid a small charge 6 euros also cafe for drinks and snacks. As pensioners we were only charged 3 euros (bargain). You can see and visit he bastions, the parade ground, sea rampart and the Moats. Gardeners keep the moat gardens irrigated and tidy with soom pretty flower beds and hedges. Other Montjuic gardens are less spectacular and formalised. There are terrific view seaward and inland, these are worth the entrance fee alone.

Here the place is a massive fortification dating from the 17th century. Sited on the crest of the hill of Montjuïc, it offers panoramic views of the city and port, and forms a sharp contrast to the ultra-modern sports halls built nearby for the 1992 Olympic Games. But it is a bit far from the city center.
