What do you possibly want more than this?

Going to Montjuic Castle is like a mini city escape still being in the city.
Nature around is great, the landscape is impressive, the castle is a large park with no cars, quite and relaxing. The terrace on top of the castle is excellent to sit and relax while watching barcelona on a 360 degrees.

And if this is not enough, from the end of June to August there is concert and cinema in the park (www.salamontjuic.org). Go for a pick nick with a sandwich and a beer, sit down in the lovely grass of the park, listen to a good concert and finally watch a movie in original version (generally English). Price? €6. Perfect!

One of the best castles I visited, with very good view on Barcelona city and port. The visit was very calm as we went by teleferique from Barceloneta. Montjuic was cool and we were happy we could go out of the hot city and have a break from its hustle and bustle.

The easiest way to the top of the mountain is by cable car, which costs about £10 each return and includes entrance to the fort. The fort provides excellent views of the port and surrounding areas and there are various big guns etc to see. The gardens surrounding the fort are very pretty.

We have been to Montjuic Park and to the Castle Montjuic on a sunny day, and we got a perfect view of the city.
It was a little complicated to find a place to park the car, but if you go by bus they will get you very close to the gates of the castle.
There is a little restaurant inside the castle, but things there were expensive, so we didn't buy anything there.
After all, the Castle is a nice place where you get a great view over Barcelona.

I was a little underwhelmed by Montjuic Castle during my recent visit to Barcelona. It had been on my short list of things to do in Barcelona, but the view is really the only reason to visit. Don't get me wrong, the views of the harbor and Barcelona are great, I just expected more. Other than the views, there really isn't much there. I took the 150 bus there, but you can also take other modes of transportation or walk. Enjoy the view!
