The Institut Narcís Monturiol (Montbau, Horta-Guinardó), situated at the foot of the Collserola chain of mountains, celebrated its 50th anniversary in the 2018-2019 academic year. Its commitment to the territory and to literary creation is especially evident in the Sant Jordi Literary Competition – the 36th edition of which was held in 2016, making it one of the oldest in Catalonia – which is open to primary and secondary schools in the district.
