  • The sound of alarms you can download to the shelter. This was the warning that we hear from the audiovisual Museum room. We begin the descent down the stairs, up to 9 meters depth from the level of street. By the team's public-address system reproduced: down very carefully, remembering that the last time there were 3 victims by the avalanche. Here begins the visit of the 4.5 km (only you can visit 1Km) of Gallery built in 16 months thanks to the cooperation of citizens. Architect Guillermo Langle Rubio. Touring the tunnel we could see the pictures related to this chapter of the war. Cervantes, clippings, notices of the Town Hall Museum. The guide already has started to tell. Us advises that the shelter has 67 openings of access. There is an intact, is the of the photo of the kiosk of work, painted in red. The tour takes place under the rambla of Almeria, with slope towards the sea. "So if you hear noises don't be alarmed, they are passers-by that the veneer logs resonate here. It's not the echo of the past." The truth is that sometimes sounded with a great noise. He only sound during the attacks was the of them pumps and the bark of them dogs. Refugees could pull hours in fierce darkness within the refuge. Overnight light could exit through one of the openings and ratting them. Buttresses, (also photographed) partitions covering half tunnel can be observed in the course of all the Gallery, it served to mitigate the shock honda of the bombs that fell at the entrance. Now I saw something that made me "true joy": some drawings on the wall of the gallery. (They also photographed). I like to see it, because that shows that even in times of extreme difficulty, can be used wit, imagination and art. Therefore rather light had. We move forward. "Now we will see an operating theatre was built under the hospital. During the bombardment doctors could care for some patients, even some women had their children here, in the refuge". The guide tells a story: "three years ago, during the visit a woman could not hide his tears. Is it well? Yes - said Lady - my mother always told me that I was born in a shelter, I thought that it was not true. Now I see that it is true"that impressed me, as well as the Guide. Thinking she part of a song of Victor Jara came to mind: "Tree of so much hope, were born in the middle of the Sun". While we photographed the operating room, I approach the teacher and ask: "what was the name?-Guide: would who? - the woman, who was born here-Guide: I think that Rosario." But wait, on another occasion we visited two slightly older women. They were two nurses in this operating room who also attended births and still recalled the furniture doctor, the shelves, the sinks and utensils. I was told that the story told of the refuge was true, that he was well informed". At this point, or better, depth, made high humidity here inside. We were below the level of the sea. Not under the sea. Not is if others, like me, go with the same ambition: let us imagine what happened here. In my case it was in vain. I could not make me to the idea of seeing the shelter full of people, sitting on the side of a wall of concrete, the most terrified, I think that only some children to ignore what was going on, were to spend hours. Or perhaps waiting for his turn to play with the little toys (Fotografiados. They were donated to the Museum). Why do memory of this dark page of the shelter?. The response gives it one of the interviewees, we can see in the audio-visual room, the concludes with these words: "that does not happen again. That does not happen again". Tribute:-who you were at the time tunnel

  • Essential must be in situation when thousands of Almeria had to shelter from the bombing. The architect Guillermo Langle made a masterpiece with these pillars crossed as bumper shock waves

  • It is a real shame that the visit to this landmark of the city of Almeria is as low-skilled professionals and I refer to cultural leaders and not to place workers patients. It is inconceivable that there is no historical reference to the conflict, the Spanish Civil War, which gave rise to the shelters. If the unfortunate introduction video, it could be a construction of the first world war or the second. The fervor for not contextualize rude way the history of the city and the civil war make the explanations and the visit become a walk through a tunnel without any other attraction. Also, is long, boring, monotonous and it allows photograph but not filming video even with phone mobile. Should suppress the embarrassing video of introduction and can offer a visit from the end, near the old circle commercial, limited to 15 minutes, where see the operating room and something of the tunnel, and keep the visit long, from the door Purchena, to them truly interested in all the tour. But with its context historical intact. Visitors deserve respect.

  • I recommend visiting them. I've gone three times this year since I usually carry my family and friends when I visit. The guides explain it very well and it is very entertaining. The only downside that I have to put is that they can go/child and it is quite annoying because, you put the first or not you hear of what they say. It would be nice that children entretuvieran them teaching them the history of shelters more closely to them.
