Montjuīc Castle and Military Museum

Montjuīc Castle is only 500 m from the funfair and is at a height of 170m on a rocky terrace.

The castle would appear to go back to the Middle Ages. Ferrer i Guārdia and Lluís Companys, who was president of the Generalitat when the Civil War broke out in 1936, were executed in its trenches.

It was rebuilt in 1960 by the architect Joaquim Ros de Ramis. Part of the rooms of Montjuīc Castle are now home to the Military Museum, where various arms and military contraptions from all ages and countries are exhibited. However, the best attractions of Montjuich Castle are the views of the city and port.
