On the plaza floor in front of you troops drilled, stood inspections, and assembled for formal events. The large, vaulted rooms that surround the plaza, called casemates, housed a kitchen, chapel, storage areas, officers' quarters, and barracks for enlisted men. Some outer casemates were used for firing cannon. The center of the plaza contains a wellhead, to which soldiers came to draw water from three large cisterns beneath the plaza.During the late 1700's and most of the 1800s, this plaza was a very busy place.
