Moguer Castle

Moguer, Spain

Castillo de Moguer was renovated and enlarged in the 14th century. The oldest record document of castle dates from 1362, but it probably existed already in the Moorish age.

The castle was built of mud-based mortar gravel, clay and lime. It is of an imperfect square plan 44 by 45 metres in size, with four towers at the corners. A moat surrounded the castle, as evidenced by written records, but is not currently visible. Access to the castle was across the northwest side, now Santo Domingo Street, via a ramp. Each tower measures 9 by 9 metres and contains two chambers with a covered brick dome. The four towers were topped by battlements. A cellar dating to the 18th century, measures 22 by 10.5 metres and serves as the headquarters of the Tourist Office.

The marvelous castle, the enclave for an ideal concert, but regularly lit, can be improved.

It was closed when I went, and according to the schedule it must have been open, I could only see it through the gate.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
