“A nice way to enjoy a morning”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Such a gorgeous place, and in parts it is very tourist free and quite serene and secluded. There is a gorgeous sculpture garden Jardin de Joan Maragall which we would recommend going to, but as far as we could see there is only one entry and exit. The rest of the park where all the major fountains and tourist attractions are there are the usual hoards of people. There are good views across the city from the top.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We took the funicular and cable cars up. What an amazing view of the city and surrounding areas. The funicular was a little difficult to find at the start, but eventually found it. Well worth the effort

“Really neat castle”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

I wasn't all that impressed with the park area itself but the castle was very cool. We purchased tickets to take the cable car to the top and the castle has free admission. You can go up to the top and see pretty much the whole city. The park seemed like just a lot of grass. I was expecting a lot of flower gardens but there really weren't many at all. The Olympic Stadium was also kind of disappointing. It's just an empty stadium. Nothing really stood out about it except for the Olympic torch in the front. I think this is still a place to see when you're visiting Barcelona, but it was not my favorite.

“Great views over the city”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Take the metro to Parallel but don't exit the metro system as your ticket includes the funicular railway. Take the funicular railway then the cable car (buy a return ticket for about 9 euros) which will get you to the top of the hill. You can wander around the castle and have great views over the port area and the city.

On the way down in the cable car get off at the mid station and take a wander around the gardens and fountains. There is also a view over the city from a viewing area.

Back on the cable car to the base station and you can wander around to the art museum and the magic fountain (which wasn't working when we were there).

Good value for money and not difficult to get to.

“Lovely area”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Walked around a lot of the park. It is all free. The views from the top of the castle are amazing as you can see all around Barcelona. We went over to the Olympic stadium as well and had a look around there. Quite amazing (different from London).
