“A moving experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Well presented and our guide spoke clearly. My Spanish is basic but I was able to understand most of it. However, I'm sure that more foreigners would visit if the video at the start had subtitles (even if only in Spanish) and if there were a small explanatory leaflet in English and/or French. Very moving, though, and well worth the visit, specially at 2€ each for OAPs!

“no visit possible”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

The tour is in Spanish which is fine by me and will take 1 1/2 hours however you do need to be lucky if just turning up on the day. They have quotas for each tour and on a Friday morning we found no spaces until the following day. Probably off season is easier. So plan in advance as this tour is popular.

“Don't go if you're claustrophobic!”

Very interesting place to get some information about the Spanish Civil war, but the tunnels go on and on so be prepared for a long walk.

“interesting walk through the tunnels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

this is a great way to learn about the civil war and its consequences for the local population. You need to reserve by phone in advance, but we could go to a guided visite the same day still.

“Unbelievably sad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

A place where refugees found some safety in the civil war but many innocent lives were lost getting there. Women and children shot at from aeroplanes. Stories of survival very moving - take a hanky and say a prayer for those who didnt make it to 1946.
