The views from the top of the castle were fantastic and certainly the highlight of the visit to this castle. It was also interesting to watch the continual procession of planes coming in to land at Barcelona Airport. However, the castle does lack the Wow...More

Shockingly used many times to bombard Barcelona itself. We had a great time wandering around in the winter sun. Everything clean and tidy and access from the cable car makes it easy to get to. 5 euros each for entry is well worth spending.

Have visited many forts not dissimilar to this, so the interior wasn't exactly a wow, though there's an interesting historical exhibit. The battlement views are superb, however. We went on Sunday afternoon when it's free, and I probably wouldn't rush to pay to visit this.

The castle is a must see when in Barcelona. I enjoyed the stroll on the grounds and the museum inside.

A must, must do. The views are spectacular and the peace and serenity captivating. Escape the hustle and bustle of Barcelona city. It was a highlight of our visit.
