Baluarte de SantiagoEste baluarte fue reconstruido a mediados del siglo XX y difiere del modelo original, pero sus actuales elementos permiten una interpretación del sistema defensivo de la ciudad. El original se edificó en 1704 cerca de la Puerta de Guadalupe, hoy también desaparecida, fue el último construido en Campeche que permitía el cierre del perímetro amurallado y el primero en demolerse en 1916, para construir un centro de salud pública. Contaba con una rampa de acceso paralela a la muralla; un pozo de agua y tres crujías pequeñas: una era almacén de balas y las otras dos acogían al cuerpo de guardia. Anexo a este edificio se encontraba el edificio del Cuartel de Castilla o La Maestranza el cual era un
edificio alargado de techos bajos con tan solo algunas ventanas hacia el frente que servía para alojar hasta
200 elementos de tropa. Actualmente es sede del jardín botánico Xmuch-Haltún. English:Bastion of SantiagoThis bastion was reconstructed in the middle of the 20th century and differs from the original model, but its current elements allow an interpretation of the
defensive system of the city.The original was built in 1704 near the Guadalupe Gate, also gone today; it was the last one built in Campeche that allowed the closing of the walled perimeter and the first
one to be demolished in 1916, in order to build a public health center. It had an access ramp parallel to the wall, a well for water and three small rooms: one was a storeroom for bullets and the other two were used as lodging for the guards. Attached to this building was the building of the Barracks of Castilla or La Maestranza, which was a long building with low roofs and only a few windows facing front which was used to house up to 200 troops. Today it is the site of the Xmuch-Haltún botanic garden.
