The fortifications on Montjuïc Hill
Last Sunday 29 March, Girona City History Museum organised its first tour of the little-known fortifications on Montjuïc Hill: St Joan¿s Tower, St Lluís¿ Tower, St Daniel¿s Tower, St Narcís¿ Tower, Suchet Tower and Montjuïc Castle. The tour is one of the Museum¿s ¿Walk through History¿ itineraries.
The group consisted of thirty people from the Girona area, who were able to rediscover a forgotten aspect of their cultural heritage, seen in all its splendour from the context of the bicentenary commemoration of the Peninsular War (1808-1809). Jaume Prat provided the commentary on the tour. Access to the castle and all the towers proved feasible. Transport by courtesy of Gironès County municipal bus service.
The tour will be held again on Sunday 3 May and Sunday 4 October, at 11 am.
