Archeological Museum Ex-Polveriera Guzman

From Spanish poder keg to museum

Along the walls of Levante of the historic center of Orbetello this splendid example of Spanish military architecture is part of the fortifications system built in 1692 to protect the capital. This stone-roofed structure was outfitted with four obelisks positioned in front of the windows in order to protect the explosive contents from weapon fire. After docking at Talamone, Giuseppe Garibaldi came here to stock up on weapons and ammunition for the Expedition of the Thousand.
