Photographer's Note

After a scenic drive to the top of the mountain you’ll find abandoned buildings which look almost castle like and two massive Vickers guns (38.1 centimetre caliber 1926 models 17 meters long guns). More information about them can be found in the Cartagena Military Museum. The guns were apparently last fired on the 26th April 1973 by Republicans at a group of Nationalist cruisers. In such a tranquil setting it is hard to imagine the boom that the guns would have made as their artillery travelled the 20 miles to its target.
