The Castell de Montjuïc is extending the Stone, Montjuïc, Barcelona. Building the City exhibition, which can be seen at the parade ground until 29 July.  Since it opened on 22 January, over 250,000 people have visited it.
The exhibition recounts the history of the quarries on Montjuïc. The aim is to invite visitors to get to know the relationship between Barcelona and Montjuïc from material and cultural perspective. The exhibition includes geological, sculptural and architectural pieces lent by some of the city's leading museums: the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya, Museu d’Història de Barcelona and the Museu de Ciències Naturals. 
The exhibition is divided into two chapters: Montjuïc, the raw material, a description of the mountain that explains the use of the quarries and the city's growth as closely linked factors throughout Barcelona's history, and Sculpture Barcelona, an artistic look that goes beyond the history of the stone and displays sculptural and architectural works from different eras, in different styles and for different uses, revealing part of the art and history built from stone in our city.
