near Castelldefels, Catalunya (España)

Castelldefels Castle is on the coastal plain between the Garraf massif and Barcelona city. The church inside dates from the 10th century and is the oldest part of the castle built on Iberian and Roman remains.



The Castle served for centuries for the territorial and defensive control of the city against Arab invasions, and between the 16th and 17th centuries, against the attacks of Barbary pirates.



In 1897 Manuel Girona, a Catalan banker and politician, bought and restored the Castle, which was in a state of ruins. During the civil war it was used as a military training center by the republican authorities and, later, the church became a barracks for international brigade members and a prison for deserters.
