The mountain of Montjuïc (Mont Jovis) is a small elevation of elongated shape, located south of the city of Barcelona forming a natural barrier between the latter and the sea.
Its maximum height is 191.7 mts. where is situated the "Castell de Montjuic" (Montjuic Castle), full of gardens and monuments is an emblematic place for the city of Barcelona.
Historically has provided a wonderful rock for construction since Roman times, many buildings of great relevance throughout the ages have been built with the sandstone of Montjuïc, the Cathedral, the Parliament and numerous buildings of the Modernist epoch are examples.
Geologically it is to a large tilted block formed by detrital sedimentary rocks of the Miocene of deltaic origin with the materials coming from the erosion of the Sierra de Collserola (Tibidabo) forming these deposits in ancient coastline.
This consists of a succession of levels of sandstones conglomerates and lutites which have had intense processes of silicification and oxidation affecting differently permeable and impermeable levels, forming numerous fillings of Quartz-chalcedony-opal and Baryte.
This mountain is part of the deposits where many lovers of Mineralogy and Geology of Barcelona we started.
