Barcelona, Spain (4) – Castell de Montjuic
When we stopped to take a look at our surroundings from the Ferry Terminal, we saw a hill in the distance and as per usual, we make it our mission to conquer it. Unfortunately there was a lack of street signage so we relied our phone map to find our way. Equivalent to about 50 floors, we weaved our way to the top and discover an interesting historical site. Not a castle, as the title states, this a military fortress that dates back to the 1600s.
We could have taken the gondola but we always find that part of the fun in reaching a destination, is how you get there.
