Castell de Montju´c

On different occasions during the Spanish Civil War, both Nationalists and Republicans were executed at the Castell de Montju´c castle, each at the time when the site was held by their opponents.
The Catalan nationalist leader LluÝs Companys i Jover was also executed there in 1940, having been extradited to the Franco government by the Nazis.
