National uprising

From this military enclave the rebel troops went to the Government of the Republic on 19th July, 1936.After crossing Avinguda Diagonal, then known as Avinguda del 14 Abril, they occupied the city’s streets, full of barricades built by the people and soldiers loyal to the Republican government.

Request for it to be handed over to the city

Caserna del Bruc is still occupied by various infantry units of the Spanish army. Since 2008, the city’s municipal governments have been petitioning the Ministry of Defence to return the building to the city for social uses, but to no avail.
