Historic defence buildings have intrinsic value in their own right as the fabric of human achievement in arts, design and construction but they were built for a use that no longer exists today and, therefore, they are closed, even administratively abandoned, and the passage of time has caused their deterioration.

It is known that the best way to conserve historic buildings is to find viable and compatible new uses that all historical buildings to retain their historic character conserve significant fabric and keep them in good repair into the future. This idea lies into the concept of the heritage adaptive reuse and successful experiences regarding the transformation of defence sites to civilian uses exist around the world.

This paper presents the results of the enhancement project and reuse of the Spanish Fort of Santiago, located in the Chikly Island (Tunis), where the preliminary studies (recreational carrying capacity, tour pattern, accessibility, etc.) have been performed in order to be visited.
