Venetian explosives store

Description

Built at the end of the sixteenth century like the one in the valley of Colle Aperto, it is made of sandstone, constructed with an overturned rectangle positioned on top of a pyramid.

Two metres wide and 7 metres tall, the top was covered with lead to ensure water resistance, necessary for the proper storage of gunpowder.

Defence walls and gunpowder storehouses are the only Venetian military structures that have remained intact.
