“true castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

this castle is really great, still has some old canons which a humungous in size. the overall structure is huge and well maintained. it gives a really nice view of the city. you can walk or take cable car to reach the castle. the lush green gardens are well maintained.

“Nice afternoon.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Not much to do once there but to admire the Spectacular Views of the city. Well worth the effort to get there if you don't mind the €10 for a return ticket. (mostly sold to tourists).

“Amazing vistas over Barcelona away from the bustle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

A must visit in Barcelona; the cable car ride and views from around the Castle on Montjuic are jaw dropping. The epic scale of the port is quite jaw dropping and the more pleasing panoramas over the city and Mediterranean in every direction including the Olympic park and city centre are mesmerising. The grounds around the sprawling castle are spacious and interesting but you can also pay to go inside to view the interior exhibitions which we did not do so I can't comment on that. An excellent place to escape from the city for a relaxing walk and some air if nothing else.
