Spanish term or phrase: revellín
Couldn't find this in my dictionaries or a definition in the Internet.

I'd like if somoeone could explain what it is . It seems to be part of the wall of a fortress but I have to be more spoecific or I could really put my foot in it.

Thanks.

PS Refers to the Castillo de Santa barbara, el revellín del Bon Repós.
