Have you ever visited the Castle of Montjuic?
The castle was built in the 18th century not to defend Barcelona, but to watch it. Maybe that´s why the Castle of Montjuic is a magnificent place to see the city, specially the port and La Rambla. In the 19th century the castle was used as a prison, and for several decades of the 20th century it was sadly a place of execution. Nowadays the castle is a Military Museum. During July and August its gardens host the Open Air Film Festival Sala Montjuïc, a classical event of the city where the best independent films are shown.
