The numerous and mysterious passages inside the bastions were constructed simultaneously with the building of bastions in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
The earliest passages were obviously constructed in the 1630s when the earth mounds, the old Wismar Ravelin above all, were heaped up in front of Tõnismägi (St Anthony’s Hill). Construction became more intensive beginning from 1672 when the Swedish Bastion and the Ingermanland Semi-Bastion were built. According to the fortification plan confirmed by the king in 1686, the Swedish Bastion, the Ingermanland Bastion, the Wismar Ravelin and the De la Gardie Redoubt in front of the latter were built and they had been completed by 1710.
