Full description
Get to know the refuges of the Spanish Civil War in Almería. Some 4.5-kilometer underground galleries were built to shelter about 40,000 people during bombings. With this visit you will be able to see nearly 1 kilometer of galleries with a guide telling anecdotes about their hidden histories. Admire a small hospital with an operating room, as well as one of the private rooms where, if you look at the walls, you will see works art that children left behind. Descend 9 meters underground, or, if you are brave, a full 16 meters, and discover an old and fascinating pantry. A unique, unmissable experience.
