Metro, funicular and cable car, all interconnected and arrives, practically at the door of the castle! The castle is an old military fortress, which dates from 1640, and its facilities are very austone. In other words, besides the historical construction, what is really worth the visit are the breathtaking views of all of Barcelona. Practically 360 º!
Unfortunately the cable cars to the castle were not open due to high winds :( , which was a little disappointing as I am sure this would have added to enormously to our visit, but the castle itself is magnificent and reading the well listed out information boards really gave you a details insight into the significance of this monument to the history of Catalonia and Spain. Well worth a visit during any visits to Barcelona.
Beautiful place to view the sunset. Entry fee is very cheap. There is a cafe inside . The place was a fortress formerly. One side you can view the whole wide coast and the other the city view. Highly recommended, evenings after 6 would be a better bet.
