Montjuïc Castle is an imposing castle that dominates the city since 1640. It was primarily used to repress the people during two centuries. Repression of the anarchists in the XIX century and prison for the political prisoners under Franco. In 1940 Lluis Companys was executed here. He was the president of the Generalitat of Catalonia. Nowadays is the only place of the city where you can see a statue of Franco. It also shelters a military museum.
