On Mont-roig’s coastline we can still see some witnesses of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). They are two machine gun nests. One of these bunkers is situated at the Pixerota beach and the other at the Casa dels Lladres beach, nearby Miami Platja. They were defensive fortifications, ordered by the II Republic government, to withstand possible sea attacks and landings of insurgent Franco troops. The machine gun nests are part of more extensive defence structures and nowadays they are completely integrated in the coastal landscape where they were built.
We could highlight the holes, in which the machine guns of the republican army were placed. The basic material that was used for its construction was mortar. At the machine gun nest construction in Miami were added stone, with a clear camouflage function.
