Beck Bastion


Erected during the first Spanish rule by Isaac von Traybach on the site of what is now Constitution Square (1644), the bastion is named after the former Governor of the Duchy of Luxembourg, Baron Johann von Beck.
During the first French rule from 1684 to 1697 Vauban raised the walls of the Beck Bastion lining the Pétrusse valley to the level of their present height.
In 1860 it was strenghtened further, only to be partly dismantled seven years later.
