Guided visits to the Castle of Montjuïc

Guided visits to the Castle of Montjuïc, Barcelona’s viewpoint

These guided tours of the old fortress now have a new winter timetable

Located 170 metres above sea level, the Castle of Montjuïc is a place that offers fantastic views of Barcelona, with the city spread out below from the hills to the sea and from the River Besòs to the Llobregat. It’s worth going up to the castle for these 360º panoramic views  alone, though the 18th century fortress is also an notable example of military architecture and full of historical curiosities.

For those wishing to discover the secrets of the Castle of  Montjuïc, the best option is to join one of the guided tours in English that start at 11am from Monday to Friday and at 11am and 3pm at weekends and on public holidays. The itinerary allows visitors to explore the history of the mountain of Montjuïc, from the first prehistoric settlements to its current status as a nature and leisure park, and the castle itself from its medieval antecedents through the turbulent period following the War of the Spanish Succession to its recent status as a space open to the citizens. The guided visit includes admission to places that are not open to the general public, such as the watchtower and the cistern.
