Located on a rocky terrace more than 170 metres above sea level, Montjuïc Castle is an old military fortress with a long history closely linked to the city. The first fortification on Montjuïc Mountain was built in 1640, during the revolt against Felipe IV. In 1694 the fort became a castle and the grounds took up most of the summit. After the Spanish civil war it was a military museum and in 2010 it was closed and transferred to the Barcelona City Council to be used for cultural purposes.
The cable car to Montjuïc should not be confused with the cable car to the Port (known as the Aeri del Port) which is a separate cable car system that can be seen operating over Barcelona’s port.
