**** Top tip - It's free to enter after 3pm on Sundays ***

We took the Funicular & cable car up, however I'd suggest a taxi if a group of 3 or 4 of you because it will be a lot quicker and cheaper.

Excellent views of the harbour and the city with some displays inside of the history of the Castle.

To visit the castle you can use the bus, the cable car or you can walk uphill through the park.
The visit starts with a video presenting the castle history. On the walls facing the port some guns are still present.
The views from the top are amazing.

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 little difficult to get to. There are cable cars and buses that go to the top. We took a taxi from the Columbus Monument area for approx 10 Euros. We rode the cable car back down to the bus drop area and grabbed another cab.

Nice spot for beautiful views of Barcelona, from the mountains to the seaside: we went there with a few kids (9-12) who did enjoy visiting the castle and the views, including the short trip using the teleferic system to get to the top of the montjuic, straight to the entrance of the castle. There isn't much to see in the castle itself, but it's definitely a very good location to visit.

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 entry fee (as with everywhere in Barcelona) you can wander around. There is a "museum" but really it's just plaques with info. Nothing mind blowing. There are also a few cannons and outlook posts and gardens tp walk round. Nice for a stroll.

Found a nice walk up to the Montjuic Castle. Take the metro to the Parallel station and look for the funicular up Montjuic. Once you leave the funicular station, head up the road and you will find a staircase on the left side. It is a quiet place to walk and get a beautiful view of the city.

Took the cable car up to the castle. The castle sits high on a hill just outside the port and has the most spectacular views across the city. So for no other reason go there for this.
The castle itself is well maintained and has a great deal of history. All of which is well described in Spanish and English.

We got a taxi from Passeig de Garcia (approx £10) to the cable car, then cabled up to the castle for spectacular 360 degree views. €5 adults €3 children entrance fee to the castle. WC's in the castle and vending machine drinks and snacks available too. Lovely morning out, then we walked down to the Magic Fountain area - about 30 minutes.

Spending a few days in Barcelona filming for my video and staying just off the busy La Ramblas.

Took the cable car to the castle which i have reveiwed and uploaded pictures separately.

Worth the €5 entry fee to see the castle in its entirety and to see those views.

Great little historical facts dotted around the site for you to read

And the views are just breathtaking
