La forma original del Cubete del Alcázar Real de Carmona

Among the works of the so-called “transitional” military architecture from the last quarter of the fifteenth century, one of the most unique cases erected in the Iberian Peninsula is the Cubete of Carmona (Seville). This bastion built in the times of the Catholic Monarchs follows the new poliorcetic standards, but with forms, which are quite innovative and could be considered breakthrough. Conceived as a bastion external to the Alcázar Real, it has a moat in part connected with the moat of the main fortress.
