Barcelona is contained by the sea and the mountains. Next to the port rises the mountain Montjuïc (173 metres), dominating the fascinating view over the crowded city bustling at its feet, and the other end of the city is the Collserola Sierra. Montjuïc, inhabited in the third century B.C. by the Iberians, is today one of the largest, most lovely parks of Europe, crowned by a castle dating back to 1640, extended and fortified in 1694, and refitted again in the second half of the 18th century. Definitive touches were put to Montjuïc in 1992, when the city of Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games, and the mountain became the main venue for the sports competitions.
