Montjuïc Castle, Barcelona. Montjuïc Castle is an old military fortress. Built in the 17thcentury, it is located at the top of the hill of the same name that flanks one side of Barcelona and looks out over the city's port. After sundry military uses, in 1963 it was converted into a military museum. In 2008, it became council property. In 2009, work began on refurbishing the fortress and its garden to prepare them for their new public uses: areas dedicated to leisure, culture and remembering the past.


Toyser was commissioned to conduct the tacheometric survey of the areas currently used by the army, as well as the elevations of the perimeter walls on the first and second enclosures and the walls on the defensive ditch surrounding the castle. A further task involved verifying the different levels, along with a number of specific actions, such as the covered path in the southern part of the castle, which runs to an approximate length of 600 metres, the surface of the first enclosure, the parade ground and the roof of the military museum, an inspection of the ground plan, and the drafting of a longitudinal and cross section of each room opening onto the parade ground, among others.


Toyser supplied the human and topographical resources required for conducting the survey in the shortest possible time and with the utmost assurances of quality.
