Saw tooth

Go back




The name of this element is due to an acute angle of the edge.

 

This kind of construction was used when the ruggedness of the ground did not allow a traditional bastion. In the centre of the embankment of the saw tooth youi will find the entrance to mtwo tunnels. The right one takes you down to the moat, the left one to the so-called laboratory of mixtures. The ramp of the main building goes to the highest part to the castle. Below there ara diferents rooms and an water tank.
