POI 4 - Fortress of Bernia.

The Fort of Bernia is located on the southern slope of the Sierra de Bernia in the municipality of Calossa d'En Sarrià. The fort was built in 1562 but was demolished in 1613, mainly because of its impractical location. Now only a ruin remains. Striking are some preserved roof vaults of the former crew quarters.
