Montjuic Castle is one of those places we knew we wanted to see, but will be a one-time visit only. We checked at the gate that it was wheelchair friendly and were told it was. Aside from the very steep path up to the castle...More

The castle offers nice views of the city. That's about it. The castle is mostly empty aside from some small exhibits that are set up in some of the rooms. The most interesting fact about the castle is that the president of Catalonia was shot...More

Take the funicular from parallel up to the cable car. That in itself is a fun experience! Beautiful views from the top. It's five euros to get in to the castle but worth it.

We took the teleférico to the top of the castle. The views of the port are amazing. This location is accessible via bus, teleférico or car.

Getting to the Castle is exciting by the Cable cars. Great panoramic view of the City of Barcelona. Not much to visit apart two decommisioned Cannons facing the harbour. Entrance fee is 5 Euros. Lot of walking for nothing. Disappointing.

As you go up with teleferic you already start enjoying the scene. Definetely woth to go up to check out the view to the city and the port. Dont forget to grab a beer at the castle stop and enjoy it at the gardens.

We travelled up to Montjuic Castle late one afternoon and due to time constraints decided not to go in but walked around the edge of the building. There are some amazing views from the ramparts and this is another building in Barcelona that looks superb...More

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça
Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in
front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie
Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of
their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
