Sitting atop one of the highest points of the mountain and looking out to sea, Montjuïc Castle is a site of special historic interest.

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

Witness to 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 many other political prisoners under 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.
