The history of Bastion di Saint Remy

The Bastion of Saint Remy is located in Piazza Costituzione, Cagliari. It is one of the strongest fortifications of Cagliari, in the Castello district. It gets its name from the first viceroy, Philip-Guglielmo Pallavicini, the Baron of St. Remy. Towards the beginning of the 20th century, it was significantly changed into a staircase, made easily accessible by the Arc de Triomphe. This gave visitors access to a protected walk and a massive scenic terrace.

The fortification was first built towards the end of the 19th century on ancient walls that dated as far back as the 14th century. The three ramparts, Santa Caterina, Sperone and Zecca are linked to the Castle district.

Tourists will be interested to learn that the whole building is built in classical style, with columns Corinthian, and was constructed in a lime white and yellow Pietra Forte. The covered walkways, which was built and inaugurated in 1902, has continually been used till today.

It was previously used as a banquet hall, and as an infirmary during the first world war. And in world war II, it was used as a shelter for those who had lost their homes to bombs.
