  • If you plan to walk up there be prepared to sweat! It was about 600ft climb to walk up there but the views were amazing. It had some nice historical information but no need for more than a quick visit...  more »
  • Beautiful insins open from the castle. The roofs of the city are like in the palm of your hand. Pars Castle is the green island of Barca. One of the mast-do places of any kind. Of course, it's a separate entertainment to ride a tsunikuler.

  • I like history and visiting historic sites. This place was nice and gave a great view of Barcelona. The price was affordable; I liked how we can go at our own pace. FYI, if you go in the morning, you will get that ocean air and by ocean air I mean an odor that smells like something died and is crawling towards you.
  • Beautiful view on city and port. Very nice walk on castle. You can take also a gondola lift. But if you are in good shape I really recommend a walk up, because is super nice. Amazing gardens and environment. Also if you do not go inside of garden you will be fascinated by it. Very nice place to visit in Barcelona.
