Montagu Bastion

Listen to the Sirens | Space for Contemporary Art is situated inside one of the historical wings (just restored for the occasion) of the well known Montagu Bastion. The Montagu Bastion is one of the many bastions which were designed to draw the border and protect Gibraltar. Montagu Bastion was built on the old ruins of the Spanish Plataforma de San Andrés. The first British bastion was built in the 1730s and was enlarged in 1773, giving it a pentagonal shape. Then In the 1790s, it was completely enlarged in order to give to Gibraltar stronger fortifications.
Now, since May 2014, you can visit, for the first time since the Second World Was, the restored space, as a new and experimental place for contemporary art.
