The arsenal / shipyard most modern in the eighteenth

In the XVIII century Felipe V, the first of the Bourbons, resolved to strengthen the Navy and choose Ferrol, for its excellent geographic and strategic position, as the maritime capital of the northwestern peninsular, resulting in the construction of the arsenal and Europe's most modern shipyard. It was a larges enterprise and hard on the Spain of the Enlightenment and that link to Ferrol, from then until now, to the vagaries of shipbuilding and complex State decisions. Its functions (military-industrial-Arsenal) were divided into 2: Arsenal Park (in the western part) and Arsenal of Dams - monumental doors give access to both. Within the enclosure is the square that communicates with the dock, the Hall of Arms, Dock Bell (XIX and at the time one of the largest dams in the world), the Blacksmith Building that houses Exponav, the Naval Museum and the Library of the Cantabrian Maritime Zone. The Arsenal has unique hydraulic architecture, defense, naval and military, whose importance means that it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Consult the Ferrol tourist office for guided group tours in summer/Easter.
