We'll start with a walk in the biggest park in town, Casa de Campo, a battlefield and a frontline during the civil war. Starting from a 1933 fountain, we will walk up to one of the bunkers where soldiers used to hide weapons, ammunitions, medicines etc and where they probably also hide themselves during days. They had a wide open view of the city from there, key to locate the enemy. We will have a look at artifacts found in the trenches in recent times. We'll then head to the very centre of the city, to Puerta del Sol, to talk about historic buildings and watch ancient photo of the bombings. This tour will take you to the outskirts of the city and also returns you to its centre, so you get both the larger perspective and the point of view from right inside the urban core.
I'm an history teacher and Casa de Campo is one of my favorite places in town and also a key- scenario of the civil war, a frontline and the main battlefield during a couple of years. I like to explain and talk about those terrifying events that took Spain to be a fascist dictatorship until a few decades ago. This is the history of people who fought against fascism, people we will always remember. !Hasta la victoria o la muerte!
We'll spend 90 minutes in Casa de Campo and another hour in the surroundings of Puerta del Sol, in the very centre of the city. - Casa de Campo - Puerta del Sol
