Santa Barbara Bastion

Santa Bàrbara is the smallest of the fortified buildings of the fortress and the only one that can be properly considered a bastion in a theoretical and traditional sense. The bastions are built with one of the points pointed outwards towards the outside of the fortress, so that the cannons that defend them make it possible to strike a wide front of attack.

The bastions used to be baptized with the names of saints. Santa Barbara is the patron saint of the artillery weapon.
