Bearing testimony to the darkest side of the city's history, Montjuïc Castle is now a space open to memory and one of the coastline's best miradors.

  • Cultural heritage

Fortress on the hill

The Castell de Montjuïc, or Montjuïc Castle, is on the highest part of the hill, facing the sea and dominating the whole city. It is a 17th-century fortress built by the military engineer Juan Martín Cermeño, which has lived through numerous important historical episodes and been a key witness to various periods.

A place with historical memory

A witness of critical moments, it functioned as a prison for anarchists during the 19th century and in 1940, after the Spanish Civil War, the president of the Generalitat, Lluís Companys, was shot there along with lots of other political prisoners of the Franco regime.

Today it can be visited as a place of historical interest and, if you make your way up to the highest point of Montjuïc, you will be rewarded by one of the most impressive views of Barcelona’s port and harbour you can get.
