155mm Gun Emplacement Blue Bay

This 155mm gun emplacement on the terrain of the Blue Bay (Blauwbaai) Curaçao Resort, was part of a coastal gun complex with four 155mm guns wich could rotate 360 degrees, for the defense of Curaçao.

The complex was operational during World War II. The other three gun enplacements are also present, as well as the remains of garages and barracks. A part of the complex is restored and maintained by the foundation "Battle-Station Blaauw, Force Curaçao 1942" and there are plans to convert it into a museum.

More information and pictures can be found on Lago Colony.
