Montjuick castle is really a fortress and watchtower and had also served as a prison. The grounds are beautiful and you can enjoy great views of the city and the coastline. The castle is free on Sundays after 3pm. There is an entrance fee on other days of 5 Euros. The castle is usually open from 10.00am to Sunset. Sunsets are beautiful from this vantage point.We had fun exploring the grounds and enjoying the breathtaking views from all directions. When we were tired out, we grabbed a few bites at the cafeteria.
It was an exhausting 25 minute uphill climb to the Montjuic mountain. If you are in love with the idea of viewing a new city in its entirety, then you must find a spot that offers panoramic views.
