DESCRIPTION: Ruin of a set of two positions of heavy machine guns and their hits in a rocky area, near the sea.
They are three separate entrances that are connected by tunnels vaulted with three vents (or "stack" ventilation) visible.
Entry 1 (located further south of the joint) brings up the rock and contains two features of observation (facing north and west).
Here is a staircase in "L" on the right side to access the tunnel and the position of the first gun that is facing the bay,
Today is invisible from the outside due to a collapse. Near the entrance, the tunnel that connects to another position,
they are two of the ventilation stack. The other is located in the same tunnel, near the second position.
Entry 2 is located northwest of paragraph 1 and is embedded in the rock, accessible by a set of five steps.
On the wall of the tunnel in front of this entrance is an inscription with the date of construction and symbol of the company that built the set: "3 ª C ª. S. / 1942".
The left side of this entrance is the second position of gun, facing the beach. Is in a rectangular compartment,
vaulted, and still retains the support of gun pedestal. Outside, on top of this entry is visible in the concrete cover.
Entry 3 is the most easterly of all and is accessible via a staircase that circles down the rocks and go towards a well preserved.
The tunnel that connects the entries 3 and 2 and leading to the second position has a right-foot to about two meters, while the other tunnel has a very low height.
The building is mixed: Use of stone masonry, stone equipment (in tunnels and vaulted rooms) and concrete.
The voids are settled. Initially, the whole would be hidden. Today the tunnels are silted up to about half height.
