What people are saying:

The history of this castle is fantastic. So much of Barcelona’s history occurred at this site. When you visit check out the views of the city and Mediterranean and read the historical plaques.

    Not Worth It

    Maybe it’s just due to COVID, but this was a pointless excursion. The cable car to the castle was far too expensive for the ride (€13.50 per person, round trip). Also, everything except 3 very small, ...

    Worth the trip

    It has nice views and surroundings, but do not eat at their cafe because we got food poisoned badly from their seafood paella. If you must eat, just eat their commercially-packaged foods! I recommend ...

    Lovely walk

    We didn’t enter the castle but enjoyed the walk up from the centre of Barcelona. The walk is very scenic and has so many sights to see along the way. Worth the visit if in Barcelona.

Additional Information


Montjuïc Castle is a large fortress located on the top of Montjuïc hill in Barcelona, Spain. The castle was built in the seventeenth century to hold political prisoners, a role which continued until the late twentieth century. In the Spanish imagination the castle is a symbol of oppression and evil, an image stemming from its use as a torture and execution center during the Spanish Civil War. At present, the building houses a military museum, but plans exist to transform it into a museum celebrating international peace.
