Turó de la Rovira
of the Iberian settlements near the future city of Barcelona was situated on a
hill in the plain of Barcelona, the Turó de la Rovira. However, the main
interest of this site lies in the fact that Barcelona’s antiaircraft defences
were positioned there during the Civil War, from 1936 to 1939, and that, later
on, the hill was occupied by a shanty town built by migrants. All these remains
can be visited today and the summit also lays claim to some of the best views
of the city.
