  • Lovely building which hides an incredible story. In the middle on nowhere but worth a detour. Charming story of a home for mothers/babies sheltering from war and starvation. Loved it.  more »

  • very interesting view of how one amazing lady saved over 350 pregnant women from the beach detention camps of Argeles & St Cyprien in the Spanish Civil war RETIRADA period. A good visit for 1 hour or so,
  • Visit moving to people interested in the history of the maternity leave, who have read the book or seen the movie. Interesting the permanent and temporary exhibitions.

  • The war in Spain is very little known in France. and who knows the history of the concentration camps of the P.O? Visit the maternity of Elne and you will show a lot of respect for these women, who under the leadership of Elizabeth came to help other women, saving them with their newborns from certain death. Photos and texts very strong.. .the place is magical by its architecture. Too bad there is not a foundation to collect donations because there is still so much restoration work. Visit outside the heat because the atmosphere is very fast challenging it that sometimes forces to shorten the readings and the visit. Check out the maternity of Elne and you will understand that history repeats itself indefinitely...
