To start exploring Rincón de la victoria, visitors should first head for the Casa-Fuerte de Bezmiliana (Bezmiliana Fort), which is undoubtedly the most emblematic monument. Its construction was ordered around 1766 as a complement to the traditional organisation of military defence already in place the 16th century which included the Torre de El Cantal (El Cantal Tower ) and the Torre de Benagalbón (Benagalbon Tower), to drive back both the rampant sea and land piracy that was a constantad looming threat in the zone.
The construction is over a quadrangular floor and consists of a thick city wall with two cabins, a central building and a typical covered well on the outside calles an alcuilla (from the Arabic phrase "al qubba"meaning dome). The main door is crowned by the coat of arms of Carlos III. The inside of the fort houses the hall for the soldiers and the hall for the officers, joined together by a single fireplace with two stables featuring 14 mangers and a cobblestones floor.
This building is currently used as an exhibition hall and its walls are periodically graced by the works of the most famous national and international artists, in all their different disciplines.
