Model of the Battalions Barracks in Esteiro (1937)

The barracks were a pioneering centre for experimenting with new technologies, also serving as a pivot of the network that kept control of urban space, and a place where organization was required in order to guarantee logistics, control the soldiers stationed there, and prevent epidemics. The engineer Sánchez Bort designed the final project for the Battalions Barracks (1766), using the Belidor system: a great square block around a central courtyard with arches.
