Additional Information

Introduction

Montjuïc Castle is a large fortress located on the top of Montjuïc hill in Barcelona, Spain. The castle was built in the seventeenth century to hold political prisoners, a role which continued until the late twentieth century. In the Spanish imagination the castle is a symbol of oppression and evil, an image stemming from its use as a torture and execution center during the Spanish Civil War. At present, the building houses a military museum, but plans exist to transform it into a museum celebrating international peace.
