Tour description

1. Why take a route?

One of the reasons for doing this route is because it has always been a very silenced topic in our history, which has passed a lot on tiptoe in our educational system and it can be a good opportunity to learn about what our previous generations like our parents or our children went through. grandparents, in a period where they fought to achieve many freedoms, but unfortunately many were also lost, until reaching the democratic transition.
This route explains one of the most violent periods in our contemporary history. The itinerary aims to explain the events that happened in the heart of Barcelona in the Spanish Civil War.
