“Great view of the city, sea, and working port”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Free to get in, it offers a great view of the city and tge sea. You can spend hours watching the cargos get moved about in tge docks.
Great trip on the gondolas and funicular (surprisingly fast). Gondola a bit scary in the wind.

“Good but not stroller friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

The views of Barcelona are quite spectacular but so is the whole journey of coming up the Teleferic which is a must-do. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves esp the whole cable car ride. Good fun.

Do note that it is severely stroller unfriendly or unless your stroller has magnificent suspension, then do it. Unfortunately after getting up there, its quite problematic to move the stroller and if you want to go up another level, its only steps (no ramp) which makes it again quite painful if you have a baby with you.

“Most beautiful view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Avinguda Paral-lel metro station, then funicular to the Montjuic cable car. Some minutes "cableing" up to the Castle of Montjuic, and an excellent view to all Barcelona.
Across the Tibidabo, to the right the Port of Barcelona, and front of us the city.
A pleasant walk through the old castle, walking in the parks and very good fresh air.

“expensive trip up there but kids loved it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

we did this for the kids (5 and 7) and they loved it. They were done with city/church viewing and needed to be able to stretch their legs and not be quiet. This trip up the cable car did all those things, i still can't believe how expensive it was to go up there though! We bought tickets ahead of time but there was no line when we got there (0ctober) and we ended up having to wait anyways bc our paper printed out tickets wouldnt go through the automatic machines. Great views on a lovely day.

“Not much of a castle but amazing views of BCN”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

There is not much to see at the castle. After a long hike up the hill it was a bit disappointing. However, the view of Barcelona from up there is amazing and worth the effort.
TIP: take the cable car either on your way up or on the way down. We did it on the way down and it is fun.
Also, if you have time, visit the Joan Miro Foundation on the way to the castle.
