Luis Pizaño (died 5/10/1550 Laredo-España-Spain) was a Spanish Captain General of Artillery and military engineer. He is best known for his work on the fortifications of Catalonia and the Basque Country. In 1540, he sent a report to the Council informing them that the fortifications of San Sebastián were in a poor state and should be extended. He took part in the reconstruction of the San Sebastian murallas between 1542 and 1544.[1] Charles V let Pizaño assume responsibility for the construction of the Castell de la Trinitat and other building projects in Roses, Girona in 1543.[2] Construction of the Castell de la Trinitat commenced on 2 January 1544 and was completed in mid-1551 after Pizaño's death by the Italian engineer Pietro di Giacomo Cataneo.[3]
