Other Majorca Army Base July 2013 (warning very pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera

This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.

I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots

There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate

Then I found the long tunnel !!!

which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides

Ah nicely done there Mr B, great lookin set. I recognise an open gun emplacement there, most likely AA. The stores beneath will have been the magazine. Cordite storage with the racks being used for shells. The last few shots are of an artillery gun emplacement which would have sat on that central mount. The tunnels look a little narrow for air raid shelter although they'd have multiple uses. Most likely ammo/personal transport. Can you tell I've spent too much time reading about wartime batterys...

      I wanted to visit the building for more than two years, but I was never before in the area of this country. And I would probably not flew there this summer, if would not have been reports that the building is to be restored soon. Meanwhile, I doubt this message; but at least the rumor has had the consequence, finally to realize the visit.
       
      Currently, the former casino can only be visited with permission. Even at night a guard was present.
       
      The building was commissioned around 1900 and it was built between 1904-1910. Because maintaining was too expensive, the casino closed in 1990.
      Allegedly, already in 2013 the EU has approved 10 million € for the renovation. If this is true, it is surprising that nothing has happened within the last three years. I asked the town council by email  whether there are plans for a renovation in the near future, but I'm still waiting for an answer.

      When I got my fisheye, and as I am from Norfolk one of the first photos I took with it was a tractor! I was quite pleased with the results so I thought I would have a wander about this site. All are processed from 3 handheld bracketed images. I know a bit lazy. Sorry there seems to be a bit of a formula to the images but I hope you enjoy.
