Arsenal de la Carraca
San Fernando
dating back to 1752
 
 

 

The  first shipbuilding centre of Spain.


The re-generated area still retains some of its most unique buildings. These include the church, nursing, Ramo Hall of Engineering, Gates of Earth and Sea and the Four Towers Building. They all belong to the early days of Arsenal, whose construction was published in the Royal Order of October 3, 1752 by Ferdinand VI.

Arsenal de la Carraca
San Fernando

Núcleo importantísimo que contribuyó con su desarrollo al de la propia población. En él se ubicaron los diques y talleres que sirvieron para convertirla en el primer centro de construcción naval de España.

Fue concebido como un conjunto arquitectónico y urbanístico y aún conserva algunas de sus construcciones más singulares. Entre ellas destacan la iglesia, la enfermería, el Pabellón del Ramo de Ingenieros, las Puertas de Tierra y del Mar y el Edificio de las Cuatro Torres. Todas ellas pertenecen a la primera época del Arsenal, cuya construcción fue promulgada en la Real Orden de 3 de octubre de 1752 por Fernando VI
