This military complex, built between 1753 and 1766, is the largest monument in Catalonia and the largest fortress in Europe. The complex includes fortifications, residential buildings, an unfinished church, a parade ground and much more. Due to the size of the site, tours are divided into two parts (indoor and outdoor). The tour of the ramparts utilises a 4x4 vehicle. It may include underground visits in small boats to drinking water cisterns.
