Newly open to the public, this landmark was used as a fort in the 17th-18th centuries, a prison, torture chamber, and execution site during the Franco years, and a military museum through 2007, when the city acquired the title in order to turn a storied site of pain and suffering into a monument to peace, culture, and civic harmony.
Declared a Cultural Good of National Interest in 1988, and located on the top of the mountain of Montjuïc, the Castle provides inimitably spectacular views overlooking the city of Barcelona and its environs. Visitors are also free to explore its access bridge, façades, bastions, parade grounds, terrace with 360º views, trenches, and ramparts, to make this mountaintop excursion a truly rich and exciting experience.
