Abstract

Perhaps the best known castle of the Antonelli, in Havana, has been suffering for a long time the effects of deterioration of both of a material and structural nature. Various fissures and cracks can be found in the massive walls and in the vaults which, due to lack of conservation, to the action of the sea, and, on occasion, also to hurricanes and tropical storms, risk compromising the overall stability of the Fortress, and even threaten to undermine the foundations. This paper proposes a technique for the consolidation of the terrain, in order to safeguard the monument and its visitors. Key words: Havana, Antonelli, terrain instability, cracks, consolidation
