In the Trenches


The scene shown here can be found at the Museu d’Història Militar in Palma de Mallorca (Castell de Sant Carles). The setup is a recreation of a defence position during the Guerra Civil.

Nowadays, the fortress in Portopí is not actively used for military purposes any longer, even though Spanish troops based elsewhere in Mallorca – the Regimiento Palma 47 – are expected to be involved in a peace mission in Kosovo in 2010. The Infantry Regiment comes under the Comandancia General de Balears, part of the Ministerio de Defensa in Madrid.

Admission to the Military Museum and the Sant Carles fortress is free.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: November 21st, 2008. The time was 12:29:49.
