The height of this hill, located right next to the sea, is 173 meters. A fortress was built at its top in the 1640s, which was supposed to protect against Castilian troops. The fortress was demolished by order of Philip the Fifth in 1715. Then a new one was built, similar in shape to a star. Now it houses a museum dedicated to military history.
In 1929, the hill was declared the center of the World Exhibition. The National Palace, which is also on the hill, houses the Museum of Art. Here you can look at the frescoes painted at the very beginning of the Middle Ages. Nearby is the Ethnological and Archaeological Museums.
