Montjuic Park was a street circuit in Barcelona, named for the city park and hill in the heart of the city which it climbs. The circuit was first used for the non-championship Penya Rhin races in 1933-1936, and hosted the championship Spanish Grand Prix four times from 1969-1975. The final race was marred by a lack of circuit preparation by the organizers, a protest by the drivers and finally a serious accident that left five dead and Rolf Stommelen badly injured. The circuit has not been used since.
