Thank you!
The stone from Montjuïc was used to build most of the emblematic buildings at the town (the Roman city, the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, the Sagrada Família, the Palau de la Virreina, etc.) and it was exported to other countries. The amount of exploited stone from this place has been huge: it would be possible to build 20,000 times La Pedrera with it. So it is possible to declare, in the words of Estanislau Roca, that Montjuïc has been “the cradle and the essence of Barcelona”.

  • Como bien dices Michaela Montjuic significa en catalán Monte de los judíos. y existe este nombre también en otras ciudades catalanas y de Baleares. Un precioso paseo que he disfrutado especialmente por la música. Un abrazo y gracias!

    Gracias Pilar. 'Durante la Edad Media Montjuïc fue utilizada como cementerio de la comunidad judía, y de ahí podría provenir su nombre. Esta colina ha sido durante siglos una gran cantera, de la que se ha extraído abundante piedra de gran calidad para la construcción. También acogió durante parte del siglo XX un famoso circuito de carreras. Actualmente, su actividad se centra en tres ejes: el deporte, la cultura y la naturaleza. Habría que añadir un cuarto, la muerte: en su ladera marítima se levanta el inmenso cementerio de Montjuïc'. La montaña, por la riqueza geológica de las capas silicificadas que formaban rocas areniscas compactas y duras, constituyendo conglomerados, fue explotada masivamente en un gran número de canteras desde la época de los íberos y los romanos hasta 1957, momento en que se frenó de golpe la extracción masiva de la piedra. Montjuïc y sus canteras, de incomparable calidad, están vinculadas a la historia de la ciudad, que ha nacido y crecido a sus pies.
    Una de las más antiguas referencias a Montjuïc, el antiguo manuscrito del jesuita Pere Gil que data del año 1600 aproximadamente, nos dice:
    'La montanya de Mont Juich junt a Barcelona es de consideració per averse edificada della tota Barcelona. Diuen que la pedra creyx en ella: y que se a treta mes pedra della que no pujaria tota la dita montanya. Les moles della van per tot lo mon.'

  • Que precioso Montjuic, lo que no entiendo es que si se llevaron toda la piedra de la colina donde se apoyan los edificios, las fuentes, los parques, etc. etc., a lo mejor lo rellenaron con arena. Gracias por todas estas bellezas, Pilar

  • Transcript of "A weekend walk in Barcelona33, Exploring Montjuic4"

    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1942268-walk-barcelona33/
    2. 2. Montjuïc is a true museum in the open air where more of a hundred of sculptures from different ages coexist, by different authors and of different styles and subjects, both made of metal and stone. Furthermore, there are examples of visual poetry (at Joan Brossa Garden) or mosaics (at Mirador de l’Alcalde, by Tharrats). At Montjuïc, the artistic works go in perfect harmony with the beauty of the environment, to which the hill is an open window.
    3. 3. The gardens of Mirador del Alcalde,
    4. 4. High above the city of Barcelona, in the vicinity of Montjuïc Castle, lay the gardens of Mirador del Alcalde, literally, "The Mayor's Prospect". (Conceived and inaugurated in 1969 by the then Mayor of Barcelona Josep Maria de Porcioles)
    5. 5. From the several viewpoints (de la Puntaire, de l’Alcalde, del Poble-sec) you can gaze at the town, the sea and the harbour, and the elevations of Collserola mountain range.
    6. 6. The project itself is a minor masterpiece of European Landscape Design. The development of the proposal was a truly multidisciplinary process.
    7. 7. Joan-Josep Tharrats (1918-2001)
    8. 8. The landscape project was led and developed by the Architect Joaquim Casamor i Espona and the Horticultural expert Panella i Bonastre.
    9. 9. Joan-Josep Tharrats (1918-2001)
    10. 10. The biomorphic fountains at the heart of the scheme were designed by the Engineer Carles Buïgas, pioneer in the use of light and water in landscape design, creator of the Magic Fountain at Montjuïc.
    11. 11. Fountain1969 by Carles Buïgas (1898 – 1979)
    12. 12. Joan-Josep Tharrats (1918-2001)
    13. 13. Even more astounding is the quality of the paving scheme, itself a work of art in its own right. Conceived and executed by the artist Joan Josep Tharrats, this paving is a modern take on the classical mosaic executed with recycled materials such as bottles, cogs, cobbles, bricks, and pieces of machinery
    14. 14. The construction of the Mirador heralded the mountain space transition from military outpost into urban setting intended for the citizens of Barcelona. The project was clearly intended as an assertion of civility and urban life upon a mountain that had been mostly used to watch over its unruly inhabitants for centuries. Amazingly, these gardens laid largely abandoned and ignored for years, until they were carefully reinstated to their former splendour in 2009
    15. 15. Teatre Grec was designed and built in 1929 for the World Fair held in Barcelona, inspired by theTheatre of Epidaurus. The architects were Ramon Reventós and Nicolau Maria Rubióand Tudurí. It's located in an old quarry on the mountain, carved wall which serves asthe stage of the theater
    16. 16. The area is 460m2 and has a capacity of 1,900 spectators.
    17. 17. . Art performances are held sporadically, especially in summer. The rest of the year, isin a state that quite qualifies as semi abandonment
    18. 18. The stone from Montjuïc was used to build most of the emblematic buildings at the town (the Roman city, the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, the Sagrada Família, the Palau de la Virreina, etc.) and it was exported to other countries. The amount of exploited stone from this place has been huge: it would be possible to build 20,000 times La Pedrera with it. So it is possible to declare, in the words of Estanislau Roca, that Montjuïc has been “the cradle and the essence of Barcelona”.
    19. 19. Housed in a building situated on Montjuic hill, and built—as a few notable buildings in that area were—for the 1929 International Fair, the Mercat de les Flors theater aspires to the same level of spectacle in its intensive program of avant-garde dance and drama.
    20. 20. The Centre of Agriculture: designed by Josep Maria Ribas i Casas and Manuel Maria Mayol, it is located between Paseo de Santa Madrona and calle Lérida. With an area of 16,000 m2, it is arranged around a central patio, with five rectangular naves and two arcaded galleries. Influenced by the Italian Renaissance— particularly by Lombardy— the facades of the various facades are covered by stucco and ceramincs, with several octagonal towers and triple arches.
    21. 21. The building was designated for its current usage in 1983, and has since become a hub of Barcelona’s cultural scene.
    22. 22. Teatre Lliure, in the old Palace of Agriculture
    23. 23. The Teatre Lliure is a theatre in Barcelona considered one of the most prestigious in Catalonia. It was created in 1976 In 2001, the theater opened at its new location in the old Palace of Agriculture on the mountain of Montjuïc of Barcelona. The new building contains several halls equipped with the latest technology which permits changing the order of the rooms in mere minutes, changing the positions of props, expanding the available room, and facilitating the manipulation of the scene and staging elements. 2001 Inauguration of the Teatre Lliure in the Palau de l'Agricultura.

    25. 25. Mercat de les Flors
    26. 26. Mercat de les Flors
    27. 27. Mercat de les Flors
    28. 28. The Agriculture Palace is now known as the «Mercat de les Flors» (Market of the Flowers) and is occupied by the Theatre City, which includes the Theatre Institute, the Teatre Lliure Foundation, the Mercat de les Flors Municipal Theatre and the Fabià Puigserver Theatre. 1986 Miquel Barceló paints the Mercat's cupola
    29. 29. The Mercat de les Flors is one of several theatres, art galleries and concert halls that live among the woods and gardens of Montjuic, the green hill that guards Barcelona's port. Created for the 1929 International Fair, and fully refurbished in 1983, the Mercat is a handsome Art Deco building, painted in cream and deep red, and is dedicated to the arts of dance and movement. Inside there is a 12-metre cupola designed by the Mallorcan Miquel Barceló, and three separate stages. As well as hosting productions from all over the world, the theatre is committed to encouraging more people to participate in dance, and offers workshops and talks on dance and drama.
