Abstract[EN] The beginning of the Modern Age is highly visible in the transformations that took place in the landscape of the Baixo Miño region during the period of war suffered by this border emplacement. Advances in the technical knowledge and poliorcetic planning created the most suitable forms for defending the territory. Unlike the situation in other historical periods or areas of study, we know the theoretical and defensive strategies that were used as the basis for military constructions for each specific purpose and emplacement. Military idiosyncrasy allows little leeway to the builders, which means that the implantation of the general systems of fortification and defense along the Galician-Portuguese border were planned on the basis of exhaustive knowledge of the natural environment in which they had to be located. Consequently it was the landscape that had to the dominated in order to choose the precise location where the fortifications were to be built.
