  • Myself and a friend visited this castle in March, was quite cold as it's so high up so bring your coats and gloves! We enjoyed our visited but weren't entirely overwhelmed by the experience. The castl...  more »
  • We took the Cable Car up from the beach and walked up the hill to the Castle. It was early Feb on an overcast day so the views were not the clearest but we still enjoyed the super views of the city. T...  more »
  • We took the cable car at para lel 11, 70 euros round-trip. And arrived at the Castle it takes 5 euros for the visit and see the view of the city of Barcelona. This is true when wouldn't even bother to go there - what for the view.

  • More of a fort than a castle but a very pleasant day trip if weather is nice. Walk up is not as scary as some reviews paint it out. Cable car ride is pleasant but most people with normal fitness level would be able to walk it up. If unsure, walk at least down to view the lovely gardens.
  • It's a very nice place with great view of the port of Barcelona and it's cruise ships. You can sit around here for a long time just watching the amazing view of sea. There are old Guns and other interesting stuff around. An awesome place to sit or walk and loose yourself in the beautiful view of the sea.
  • Beautiful views, well kept grounds and smaller crowds. You have to pay to enter but can walk to around the outside for free and enjoy the parks surrounding the castle. Drive or take the gondola to get to the top, the hill is very steep.
  • Fantastic place to visit. Panoramic view of the whole city, harbor and hills. One of the most beautiful places we've seen in Barcelona. And it's really cheap - we've paid only 6€ for 2 people. I recommend to get there using the cable car as the station is just next to the castle.
  • This is an absolutely stunning site to go visit. The fort is right on the seaside and has an amazing view. Plan your trip to Barcelona in tandem with the Museums night and entrance will be free. We were lucky to be there when live music and a little bar was on.
