Antequera wishes to extend its monument-tourist offer by opening the Barbicans Promenade in the Citadel of the Town. It is a fortified wall of small height located at the foot of the main one, where the soldiers defended the fortress from being laid siege. The new route starts in the White Tower and finishes nearly besides the Arch of the Giants by going round the walls foot, from the view to the San Juan neighbourhood to the impressive view at the foot of the Homage Tower and Arch of the Giants. This restoration of our Historical Heritage will help to better understand the structure and function of barbicans as a paradigmatic element of the defensive Spanish-Islamic architecture in general, and of the Nazarí emirate or sultanate in particular. This educational facet, what implies a better knowledge of the monuments, makes them more attractive for the citizens and, definitely, it helps to protect and preserve them.
