Reducto de San MiguelLa protección de la ciudad de Campeche se completó con la construcción de seis fortificaciones en su exterior: tres al poniente de puerto y tres al oriente. El Reducto de San Miguel, cuya obra fue concluida en 1801, se encuentra al poniente. Fue proyectado, en 1779, por el Ingeniero Agustín Crame. Dos años después se le hicieron mejoras por orden del Gobernador Rivas Betancour: los trabajos estuvieron a cargo del Ingeniero Juan José de León.Finalmente, se efectuaron algunas modificaciones en el año de 1801, bajo la dirección de don Leandro Poblaciones. El inmueble contiene un puente levadizo, cuerpo de guardia, cuarto de oficial, alojamiento del comandante, cuartel, almacén de pólvora y otros almacenes. El pasillo de acceso, de forma ondulada, formó parte del sistema defensivo: evitaba la entrada franca de los proyectiles y dificultaba, así, el ataque del enemigo.En este bastión, el Presidente Santa Anna instaló un cuartel cuando, en 1842, atacó Campeche.En la actualidad su espacio se encuentra destinado a albergar actividades culturales. French:La protection de la ville de Campeche fut complétée avec la construction de six fortifications à l'extérieur: trois a l'ouest de port et trois a l'orient. Le Réduit de San Miguel, dont les travaux fuent achevés en 1801,
se trouve à l'ouest. Il fut projeté, en 1779, par l'Ingénieur Agustín Crame. Deux ans plus tardo n lui fit des améliorations sous l'ordre de Gouverneur Rivas Betancourt: l'Ingénieur Juan José León était a la tête des travaux. En 1801 don Leandro Poblaciones dirigea d'autres modifications. L'immeuble contient un pont levis, un corps de garde, une chambre pour l'officier, le logement du commandant, la caserne, l'entrepôt de poudre et autres entrepôts. Le couloir d'acces, de forme ondulée, faisait partie du système de défense: il évitait l'entrée directé des projectils et de cette facon rendait difficile l'attaque de l'ennemi. Le Président Santa Anna a installé un quartier dans ce Bastion quand il a ataqué Campeched en 1842. Cet espace se trouve actuellement destiné à des activités culturelles. English:The protection of the city of Campeche was completed with the construction of six fortifications around its exterior. Three were to the west of the port and three to the east. The Reduct of San Miguel, which was completed in 1801, is located to the west. It was designed in 1779 by engineer Agustín Crame. Two years later, improvements were made by order of the governor Rivas Betancour: the work was under the direction of the engineer Juan José de León. Finally, some modifications were carried out in 1801 under the direction of don Leandro Poblaciones.
The structure contains a drawbridge, guardhouse, officer's room, commander's quarters, barracks, warehouse for gunpowder and other storage areas. The oval entrance passageway formed part of the defense system as it prevented the free entry of proyectiles, thereby making an enemy attack difficult. President Santa Anna installed provisional quarters in this fort when he attacked Campeche in 1842. Presently, the area is destined to house cultural activities.
