Spanish Civil War shelters in Almería

The Spanish Civil War shelters in Almería are unique in all Spain. We are talking about the largest network of air-raid shelters in all Europe. A sole moment that you can’t miss if you visit Almería. 4,5 km of underground galleries that were built at the height of the war to safeguard the lives of 37,000 people from Almería. A monument dedicated to a life full of stories and anecdotes that won’t disappoint you. An experience to reflect and wonder where we are going. In 2006, almost one kilometre of the main gallery of the shelter was recovered from oblivion. In there we find several rooms such as storehouses, private shelters and even a hospital. Its building and history are full of scars that are still visible in its walls and halls. The history of a divided town and forced to meet again. We will finish this special visit with a walk through the city. We will identify those elements of the Spanish Civil War shelters that come to the surface and have so much to tell. Hidden parts of our history that go unnoticed to the local people and visitants. Programme:1.Puerta de Purchena.
