Origin of name

The name derives from the Latin Vulgate Bible verses:

* "…et dixit illi haec tibi omnia dabo si cadens adoraveris me"[2] — "And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me" (Matthew 4:9);

* "…et ait ei tibi dabo potestatem hanc universam et gloriam illorum quia mihi tradita sunt et cui volo do illa"[3] — "All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it" (Luke 4:6).

This phrase, meaning I will give to you, was said to Jesus by the devil as they looked down from an exceedingly high mountain upon all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. The name of Barcelona's hill thus refers to the popular tradition that it was in fact the exceedingly high mountain itself.
