Long Description:
"The Punta Viñas Battery, created in 1739, stands out for its historical and symbolic value. The port has fully recovered the old fort existing in the are, which had been dismantled in 1994. It was relocated, piece by piece, to its current site. Now, with its original structure, it is possible to contemplate a building that housed a small barracks, the gunpowder magazine and the quarters known as Red Bullet, where the bullets were heated before being fired."
