Castell de la Trinitat

The Castle of Trinitat, is located at the tip of the Poncella at Roses above the lighthouse.

It was built between 1544 and 1551 by the engineer Luis de Pizaño, but it was the emperor Carles I who ordered it to be built. It is a building declared a cultural asset of national interest.

It was a building that was intended to house a garrison of 350 men, with reserves to spend long periods of time. It is one of the earliest examples of a coastal artillery fortress. It was built on a heritage that controls and defends the entrance by sea to the port of Roses, the castle was part of the Mediterranean defence strategy that the Spanish Empire promoted during the modern era.

In 1814, it was partially destroyed by the blasts of Napoleonic troops. This one was in ruins until in 2002 when the rehabilitation began, this one totally despised the conserved rest, since these only served as base for a new building that little that to do with the original one.
