More holiday snaps!

The Sa Caleta Coastal Battery is a coastal defence consisting of a set of three open gun emplacements built between 1936 and 1937, by the Nationalist (fascist) forces during the Spanish Civil war to protect the approaches to Ibiza Airport.

I knew something was here but found all this more or less by accident 'cause the ruin I found on Google Earth was an excavated Roman Villa!

There is an opening in the cliff face above the beach at Sa Caleta & that attracted my attention.

At the bottom of the stairs is a corridor to some other stairs & this is how it's laid out here - no rooms at all just up, down & along
