Rehabilitación Castillo de Montjuic

Forgas Arquitectes as Architects

The Montjuic Castle is a bastioned fortress that took its actual form in the 18th century. Its concession to the city has allowed to initiate the recovery of remarkably valuable national heritage (BCIN) previously used for military purposes, to convert it into a cultural and leisure public facility.

 

In the past few years successive interventions have taken place in the area, following the master lines of an initial Direction Plan, tending to consolidate the monument, improving the security and accessibility and adapting the existing spaces to the newly planned uses and the massive touristic flow that brings up to 800.000 annual visitors.

 

These interventions have brought back the ceiling as a viewpoint as well as enabled the use of various spaces alongside the Parade Ground, such as the cafeteria and other rooms with the potential to host exhibitions or workshops. In addition, the St. Carles’ bastion has been restored, the old arsenal has turned into a welcome zone and a brand-new communications’ core has been digged inside the bastion itself. Finally, the cable car facilities have been moved out of the monument.

 

Material Used :
