Do you know what a Trinquival is? As an article published on the La Mola website (www.fortalesalamola.com) shows, it is about the “front game of a car with a very long rudder that is used to drive artillery and other effects at short distances. . There are large and medium ones. The large ones are pulled by cavalry and the smaller and lighter ones are pulled by arm. They are used in the tasks of warehouses, workshops and military parks”.
According to this news, “the Trinquival (also called the cannon tube-carrier) found in the Fortaleza of La Mola was used to transport the tubes to the artillery park when it was necessary to repair or clean them. It belongs to the 1869 model and was manufactured in Trubia in 1871. It weighs 4,620 kg and is the second to be built.”
Menorcans can feel satisfied because we have the only model on the island that is conserved in all of Spain. A luxury that reinforces the interest even more if possible for a monument as special and unique as the Isabel II Fortress in the port of Mahón.
