You can now take a three-hour visit to the hardest-hit spots in the city during the last days of the war, including the bomb shelter Refugi 307.
The last days of the Spanish Civil War saw fierce fighting and the civilian population of the city was particularly hard hit by nightly bombing raids carried out by the National army and its allies. The few traces that remain of that dark period can now be visited thanks to an initiative by the city's History Museum.
The three-hour visit begins at the doors of the museum in Plaça del Rei and finishes in the city's best-preserved air raid shelter, which is known as Refugi 307. The route, which is titled The Civil War in Barcelona: Revolution and Bombing also calls in at other spots that retain the marks of the war.
You'll find additional information on the MUHBA website, where you can also book your visit.
