About Carmel Bunkers:

The bunkers of Carmel are the remains of a concrete structure built during the civil war to serve as an anti-aerial bombardment gun emplacement. During the civil war the Italian air force was flying from a base in Mallorca to bombard the city. The Barcelona government place gun batteries on the hill in an attempt to try and shoot down the aircraft however the guns were not very accurate or effective against the dive bombers.

After the civil war the area became a squat town and the bunkers were transformed into squater housing. That is why some of the concrete slabs have been tiled over. The squatters were relocated before the 1992 Olympics.
