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.

It was interesting to see this as it is very important. I am English. The tour is in Spanish so I was not expecting to understand all of it. The tour guide I found spoke very fast and with the Almerian accent which is not clear spanish (for non Spanish speakers) I understood very little of what was said. I have done tours in Spanish before which were ok more or less. The video before the tour I understood, the speaking was clear though it did have English subtitles. Therefore, I did not get the experience the same like the other people did, they seemed very moved by it. I asked if they could print an English guide to read after. This would be very helpful to know what was explained
