Štiavnické Bane is an old mining village, historically consisting of the Siglisberg and Vindšachta settlements. Vindšachta included a complex of administrative and operational mining buildings with a large economic impact, so it was necessary to fortify and protect them during the time of the Ottoman raids. From the Renaissance fortification system of 21 gates, bastions and towers, only one has been preserved.

Watch a video about Anti-Ottoman Bastion, which was prepared as a part of project Cultural Heritage to promote renewal and preservation of cultural and historical heritage in Slovakia, through the EEA and Norwegian Funds.
