La Coruña: The Castillo de San Antón and the Military Museum

Whilst I was looking through my collection of photographs for the images of Sir John Moore's tomb in La Coruña, I can across some of the Castillo de San Antón – which guards the entrance to the harbour at La Coruña – and one of the artillery pieces that is outside the entrance to the small Military Museum that is just across the road from the tomb.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I though that they might appeal to someone, especially if they were looking for ideas for a seventeenth/eighteenth century sea-coast fort.

    Similar ones were built in the Caribbean, and could be featured in a Pirate game.

    All the best,

    Bob
