La Mola has been the subject of a report by the EFE Agency on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the approval of the decree by which the abolition of compulsory military service was formalized.
The Diario Menorca has published this report in which the legend of the fortress is revealed due to its past as a military prison and, in addition, because many young Spaniards believed that it was the worst possible destination.
Menorca was then a very important destination for the provision of compulsory military service and proof of this is the legacy of barracks and military heritage that still exist on the island.
In the case of La Mola, its buildings made a great impression among those who did not even know that Menorca existed. On the walls of its walled enclosure there are still inscriptions engraved by some recruits who thus immortalized their passage through the Fortress of Isabel II.
