1 review of Rabot

Maria Peiró

Rabot

The rabot, construction finished in the year 1941, is a fine example of military architecture. In 1488 Maximilian of Austria tried to conquer the city, taking advantage of the most vulnerable point of the defensive wall. After 40 days of siege, he was unable to get anything up the field. Then the municipal government decided to strengthen the central building with two towers, which can be seen in the pictures.
