This 18th-century castle stands on top of Montjuic Mountain . The original structure was built in 1640 during the War of the Segadors to resist Felipe IV's forces, but it was expanded and improved between 1751 and 1779 to form the present building, which has become a symbol of centralist repression and of the abolition of Catalan liberties. You'll find it at the end of the cable-car line where it protects the harbor with its show of arms.
