Turó de la Rovira

Local name: Turó de la Rovira

Turo de la Rovira is a viewpoint located on a hill that served as an anti-aircraft defense point during the Civil War. It has been under the care of the Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA) since 2011. In addition to the beautiful panorama of the city, it also offers the opportunity to visit the former fortifications and an exhibition dedicated to the Civil War and the era of General Franco's rule.

Turo de la Rovira is 262 m above sea level. It belongs to the highest hills in Barcelona. Thanks to this, as well as the exposed top and location, you can admire the omnidirectional panorama of the city from it with the most important landmarks visible, such as the Sagrada Familia, Tore Agbar or the Monjuic hill. The coast is also visible.

During the Spanish Civil War, anti-aircraft defense stations were located on the hill. The remains of artillery batteries, concrete shelters and platforms were renovated at the beginning of the 21st century. The whole area was tidied up and information boards were also installed. An exhibition of the city's life during the bombings and the post-war reality of Barcelona were placed in the rooms.
