Tierras del Ebro. Free guided tours. The Fortifications of Ametlla de Mar.

13 February 2010

La Riba

The fortifications of Ametlla de Mar   Tierras del Ebro. Free guided Tours. Like many other municipalities, the coast of L'Ametlla de Mar was fortified during the Spanish Civil War, especially after 1937, when it was suspected of a possible landing of the national side arriving from Mallorca. Although never produced, the fortification process did not stop while possible, we now find fortifications in Sant Jordi d'Alfama, Cala Moscas, Cala Nova, the Port de l'Estany and Punta de l'Àliga, to name a few. They cover up and down throughout the county, highlighting two positions today. This is St. George of Alfama and the Port de l'Estany, for reasons of visibility and conservation in large part. On the Port de l'Estany there is an artillery bunker with a battery of three guns, with corridors and rooms interconnected, allowing both the hardware and guard the artillery crews. The battery Costa de l'Ametlla de Mar, popularly known as the fortifications was framed by the Catalan coastal fortification during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), by the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Second Spanish Republic. The location of this military complex is given by its privileged situation prevailing around the Gulf of Sant Jordi. The guide includes a visit inside the fortifications, space recently restored and a museum. Days and times of guided tours at   4 pm Observations Transport from the Municipal Bureau of Tourism to Fortifications (about 3 km or so) should be made with private vehicles. Getting There The starting point of the visits to the fortifications will be the Municipal Bureau of Tourism of l'Ametlla de Mar, next to the train station (Avenida Amistad, s / n). Fortifications are located in the departure of l'Estany Gras, approximately 3 km southwest of the village and next to the beach and natural port of l'Estany. Accessed by a local highway.
