Also known by some locals as “u Biastùni”.

Only from the elevated position of the belfry and the (future!) belvedere on the bell tower can one admire the panorama that can be admired from the top of the bastion, a defensive structure that protected the people of Badolato from Turkish raids.

The medieval gate next to it is guarded by a massive defensive structure against those who came from the sea with the intention of plundering and enslaving.

The morphology of the terrain at the foot of the rampart (an almost pointed hilltop with a certain depression in the vicinity) and some evidence lead us to believe that between the place where the church of the Immacolata now stands and the rampart there was a drawbridge to strengthen the defence of the village.

Today, as in the past, the open space on the bastion is a place for meetings and events, especially in the summer.
