  • We made a quick visit to Montjuic Castle in January 2017, and the view was AMAZING at sunset. I enjoyed the history and the background, but the views were the best part. Definitely recommend.  more »
  • High altitude view of Barcelona. A combination with the visit of the fountains, the botanical garden (very treed but not very diversified) and the Museum of modern Catalan art. The whole thing is done on foot quickly from Plaza España. You have to go up to the panoramic terrace. The Catalan Art Museum is free on Saturdays after noon.

  • I like history and visiting historic sites. This place was nice and gave a great view of Barcelona. The price was affordable; I liked how we can go at our own pace. FYI, if you go in the morning, you will get that ocean air and by ocean air I mean an odor that smells like something died and is crawling towards you.
  • Beautiful view on city and port. Very nice walk on castle. You can take also a gondola lift. But if you are in good shape I really recommend a walk up, because is super nice. Amazing gardens and environment. Also if you do not go inside of garden you will be fascinated by it. Very nice place to visit in Barcelona.
