Fortezza, the GunPowder Magazine

Fortezza, the Pyramidal gunpowder magazine

We continue our tour of the Fortezza, walking east along the outer wall above the sea. Our attention is drawn to a small pyramid-shaped building.

This is one of the gunpowder magazines, open on the north side so that the sea breeze would always keep the powder dry.
