Forte Spagnolo L'Aquila, Castello Cinquecentesco, Fortezza Spagnolacon
Edificate a partire dal XIII secolo , ed in buona parte conservate ancora oggi, mantengono pressappoco la forma originale nonostante le numerose modifiche dovute a crolli causati dai frequenti terremoti e sventramenti di carattere urbanistico. Si estendono per oltre 5,5 km  inglobando un'area di circa ettari  destinata a contenere decine di migliaia di abitanti . In seguito al terremoto del alcune porzioni della cinta muraria, soprattutto in corrispondenza di Porta San Lorenzo, Porta Roiana e Porta Rivera, hanno subito crolli; altre porte Porta Bazzano e Porta Castello sono rimaste danneggiate venendo successivamente riparate. Nell'ambito dei lavori di ricostruzione post-sisma si sono verificati importanti ritrovamenti nella parte occidentale delle mura, in particolare in corrispondenza di Porta Barete  e nel tratto adiacente viale XXV Aprile, dove sono stati rinvenuti i resti di Porta di Poggio Santa Maria  . Le porta urbiche sono l'elemento caratterizzante delle mura aquilane. Le quattro principali sono state realizzate contemporaneamente all'edificazione delle mura ed a queste sono seguite altre aperture della cinta muraria in corrispondenza delle principali direttrici con il contado. Le due porte principali Barete e Bazzano erano dotate di una doppia fortificazione contenente una piazza centrale, oggi scomparsa .

In the 15th century, L'Aquila had become the second most powerful city in the Kingdom of Naples after Naples itself: there were half a million sheep, wool and saffron were exported throughout Europe; all this was lost when the Aquilans, during the war between the French and the Spaniards for the throne of Naples, sided with the French. In Aquila was occupied by the Spanish conquerors, though in the French recovered the city with the support of the citizens and the surrounding town. One year later Viceroy Philibert of Orange, ruling for King Charles V of Spain , finally defeated the Aquilan rebels and ordered the city to build a fortress in the highest spot North of the city, exactly where in King Ladislaus had built a garrison to control the unruly and rebellious Aquilans. The discovery of gunpowder obliged to new methods of defensive construction. In the following 30 years the heavy taxes necessary to build the fortress impoverished the city, which in begged the Spaniards to stop the construction; the Royal Court granted the request, and works were interrupted, so parts of the castle were never completed. The fortress had cost an enormous sum for the times, and Aquila was obliged also to sell the thick silver case containing the body of St. Bernardino of Siena.
