The views of Barcelona from Montjuic Castle are expansive. You’ll see all the city's neighborhoods spread beneath your feet. A beacon of history positioned at the top of Montjuïc, the castle was once a military fortress but now acts as a municipal facility. Enjoy the gardens on the castle grounds.

  • Beautiful view from the top. Surroundings are very quite & serene. We spent about 2 hours there walking around & enjoy the freshness of air there. 
  • Very lovely place with good views over Barcelona. I advise you to take a ride on the funicular (cable car actually), also quite remarkable

  • This is a must see when in Barcelona. The Castillian flag flaps gallantly in the wind over the harbor; a true image of old Castillian glory. The old cannon, somewhat marred by graffiti, is now a touristy spot to prop yourself on and snap a quick pic for social media. I loved going here, because the view is magnificent and you can see the entire city of Barcelona as well as Montjuïc. I rented a bike and rode up the mountain, although buses do travel here regularly. On the way up the mountain you will see the old Olympic Buildings from the historic Barcelona Olympics.
  • The entrance fee is very reasonable (€5/person and €3 for people above 65, free entrance for below 16; free entrance for Sunday after 3 pm). It is not crowded at all. The view is great. Yet in term of sophistication, it is not as much as compared to other castles I visited in UK and France.
  • It is a nice historical site and it has an amazing view over Barcelona. Definitely recommend! You can get there easily by bus from Plaça Espanya
  • Nice fortress on top of Montjuic, Barcelona. Nothing special, but has great views of Barcelona city and harbour. Also the recommended way to reach this place is by cable car which was awesome!
  • Beautiful view of Barcelona and the entrance is cheap (5€ and 3€ for students). You can see not only the city but also the sea from there. The castle is very beautiful too
