Baluarte de Nuestra Señora de la SoledadEste baluarte fue construido alrededor de 1690, donde se ubicaba la fortificación conocida como El Bonete en 1610. Es el tercero y más grande del sistema defensivo de Campeche, que servía de apoyo a la Puerta de Mar. En 1766 contaba con 13 cañones, almacenes, dos corredores, una sala de armas y dos crujías para custodiar las piezas de artillería. En la segunda mitad del siglo XIX fue abandonado y convertido en bodega de la aduana; después sirvió de cuartel a las fuerzas de la Federación; en 1929 albergó a familiares de oficiales y tropa de la Secretaría de Guerra; posteriormente fue restaurado y habilitado como museo y oficinas estatales del Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia. Actualmente es un importante museo de piezas prehispánicas mayas. La planta arquitectónica de este inmueble es pentagonal. El baluarte cuenta con plaza de armas, rampa, un espacio para el cuerpo de guardia, adarve y gola, ésta última demolida a mediados del siglo pasado y reconstruida en el año 2000. English:Bastion of Our Lady of SolitudeThis bulwark was built around 1690, where the fortification known as El Bonete (the bonnet) was located. It is the third and largest defensive system of Campeche, and it served as a support to the Gate to the
Sea. In 1766 it had 13 cannons, storerooms, two corridors, a weapon room and two bays where artillery was guarded. In the second half of the 19th century it was abandoned and converted into a customs warehouse; later it served as headquarters to the forces of the Federation; in 1929, it was used to lodge relatives of officers and troops from the Ministry of Defense. It was subsequently restored as a museum and state offices for the National Institute of History and Anthropology. It is currently an important Museum of Mayan items. The architectural floor plan of this building is pentagonal. The bulwark has a central square, a ramp, lodging for guards, and a chemin de ronde with a molding the edge of which is made up of circular arches in "s" figures, the latter demolished in the middle of the past century and rebuilt in the year 2000.
