What is a bastion?

The bastion, a fortress’s guardian, was the linchpin of medieval defence. Jutting from the walls, these angular structures provided strategic advantages, offering overlapping fields of fire for cannons and archers. With their sturdy walls and elevated platforms, bastions repelled sieges and deterred invaders. Their presence in fortress architecture was a testament to tactical ingenuity, transforming static defences into dynamic strongholds that stood resolute against the flow of medieval warfare.
