Search for highly ionizing particles such as magnetic monopoles or long-lived particles with an electric charge more than the elementary charge has been subject for many experiments over the past decades. Unique signatures for such particles require techniques to be developed on the trigger, identification and reconstruction with tracking detectors and calorimeters. This talk reports searches for highly ionizing particles using LHC Run 1 at ATLAS. First LHC Run-2 results will be included if available.
