Plaza de armas hondarribia spain 2009
Northern Spain

En la plaza de Armas de Hondarribia se encuentra el Palacio de Carlos V.


En la actualidad presenta un núcleo formado por un patio cuadrado alrededor del cual en el siglo XVIII se distribuían los alojamientos del gobernador del castillo y de sus ayudantes, conservándose algunos restos de los torreones circulares medievales que dispuso en sus extremos.

El edificio fue complementado por varias ampliaciones posteriores. La más importante es la realizada por Carlos V, que aporta la fachada principal hacia la Plaza de Armas. En el siglo XVIII las cinco plantas de esta parte del edificio fueron utilizadas como cuartel para 850 soldados, formándose en la azotea una batería artillera protegida por una cubierta.

El denominado Parque de Artillería era un anejo de una sola planta en forma de L que incorporaba almacén de pólvora a prueba de bomba, patio y una estancia subterránea.

El ejército francés dañó en 1794 gran parte del castillo y a principios del siglo XX fue subastado en estado ruinoso, permaneciendo en manos privadas hasta el año 1928 en el que pasó a ser propiedad del Ayuntamiento. En 1968 fue rehabilitado como Parador de Turismo, función que conserva actualmente.  Fuente: ingeba.euskalnet.net

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
