  • A special place where you just get if you know a little history and excites you. A video at the entrance introduces you to Elisabeth Eidenbenz and explains the permanent exhibition that in the building lived in this building. I can not explain more, it is worth going. Highlights let you a dossier in Spanish where are all the texts that are in French and the kindness of the people that are at the entrance.

  • A very special and emotional place. Elizabeth was a true heroine...very brave anc very modest
  • Very interesting story behind this place.
  • 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,
  • Nice deal. Local adapted for people with reduced mobility (ramps at the entrance and lift to access the upper floors). Parking and free. Represents a piece of our history that we must not forget not to repeat the same mistakes.

  • Impressive history that you can breathe here. But nice as a Museum, only hsy photos worth going through there. In August, and in the afternoon we were open from 2 to 6. It was an unbearable hot. So it was that we had to leave so that it touched us air
