Sant Pere and Sant Jaume Stronghold Museums

Description

In Sant Pere and Sant Jaume strongholds, we can enjoy different activities thanks to the museum transformation and heritage interpretation.

In Baluard de Sant Pere we can visit the barracks from which there are some explanatory audiovisual projections about the building of the Renaissance wall. This stronghold occupies the northeast part of the premises and it is one of the most complex due to its location over a large slope. The barracks can be accessed by a tunnel that connects with Portal Nou corridor. The barracks were located on the sides of the Renaissance stronghold. These small patios held the artillery pieces. A museographic unit shows how it was possible to build such great construction as the walled area of Dalt Vila.

In Baluard de Sant Jaume, descending from Ronda Calvi, the military technology from the 16th and 18th centuries is represented. This stronghold faces west, and the barracks on the sides cover the sides of Sant Pere stronghold on the north, and Sant Jordi, on the south. During the 16th century, the use of fire weapons thrived – blunderbusses and pistols. The 18th-century artillery pieces were lighter cannons that shot solid iron balls or canister fire that blew up on midair. The mortars launched explosive grenades. Cannons, a heavy mortar, muskets, swords, helmets, etc. are exhibited for visitors to try.

What is Fomento?

Our work is focused on making Fomento del Turismo de Ibiza an increasingly open forum for debate that draws together a wide range of interests, agrees strategies and stimulates professionals, workers, companies and organisations from all the island's economic and social spheres to benefit from membership.

We want Fomento de Ibiza to be an open forum for debate, one that agglutinates common interests, reaches a consensus as to the strategies that should be followed, and encourages professionals, workers, companies and entities from all the island’s economic and social walks of life to work together
