A fascinating tour which shows how the people of Barcelona (Poble Sec in this instance) took defence of the city into their own hands during the Spanish Civil War. It's a crucial period in history... more »
You can only go inside the bomb shelter if you have booked a tour. You can book it easily on their website with a credit card for under €4 as of summer 2019. I highly recommend doing it because the shelter is one of the few in the city that is preserved very well. It has a unique history after the war that helped keep it the way it was originally (which you can hear all about on the tour). I will say the tunnels inside are not much on their own but when you hear the story behind it and other shelters in the city it is fascinating. There is also a brief intro given to the Spanish Civil War so there isn't any knowledge required beforehand. I think this is the best way to begin learning about the War and would have a really high impact on anyone learning about the bombing and shelters for the first time. Another really interesting thing was that our tour guide's grandfather was in Barcelona during the bombing so he had a close connection to the shelter and had first hand accounts from that period. Another thing is that there is only 1 tour per language per week on Sunday morning so you really have to plan ahead to get this in your schedule. And when I went in the middle of summer there were only 3 other people on the English tour, so it is not at all crowded or too busy.
For some reason, i thought it would be a much more interesting place. It was completely empty though. Seeing empty walls and chambers didn't seem very interesting or put what people at that time had to go through to live here and be locked up inside. The tour is informative but it could be improved. It's a nice place to see but for some reason, I am kind of disappointed. I had higher expectations.
