In 2006 Petrer Town Council promoted the improvement and adaptation of two landscaped areas in the historic centre. These gardens were created at the end of the 20th century, in a hillside area known as the Altico, which is known to have been occupied from the 17th century, with pottery workshops until the middle of the 20th century, and with the installation of dwellings from the end of the 19th century. It was also known in the seventeenth century as "the Alt de la forca" or "the penjat", alluding that this would be a place of execution (Rico Navarro, 2002, 75). In this area, behind the Altico Street building, 20, there was knowledge of the existence of the remains of an anti-aircraft post from the Civil War, and until that moment it was filled with rubbish and remains of works by the residents of the area. The installation of an anti-aircraft machine gun on the second elevation of the urban nucleus (after the castle hill) and a surveillance post, both in the sky and on land communication routes, indicates the concern to protect the middle valley of Vinalopó during the Civil War.
