Montjuic Castle

The Montjuic Castle is a building located in Girona declared a Cultural Asset of Municipal Interest.

It was built by order of Philip IV, after the end of the War of the Reapers in 1653, to defend the accesses to Pla de Girona from the north. In addition, it was of great use during the French War until it was abandoned in 1811.

In 1843, it was destroyed by the bombardment of General Prim.

Currently, there are a few remains of the interior buildings and the bases of the defense towers are preserved.
