SPANISH CIVIL WAR FREE WALKING TOUR
Join a walking tour to relive the days and visit the places of the famous conflict in Barcelona, the Spanish Civil War. Recommended by The Culture Trip as one of the 6 best free tours in Barcelona.
The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) was one the most violent and dramatic conflicts in the history of Barcelona. In the Civil War in Barcelona Tour we will take you back in time to live again those terrible days as the city turned into a chaotic and bloody battleground.
From the first fights when the fascist troops attacked Barcelona and the anarchists, socialist and communist militias prepared to face them to the final conquest by General and future dictator of Spain Francisco Franco, discover the hidden marks on the city walls and monuments in the most unexpected places. Signs of bullets, bombs and propaganda writings, the secret scars that are still visible in the streets and squares.
You will see how common people lived everyday life during the war and protected themselves from the frequent bombings that hit the city and hear the long-overlooked, real-life stories and experiences of famous people that were in Barcelona during that time, like George Orwell and Ernest Hemingway.
