  • It is a work of sculptor Dani Karavan Israeli in homage to the philosopher German of Jewish origin, Walter Benjamin, who saw his last days on the border of Portbou population... Had not been at the memorial, and thanks to the good advice of my daughter that I visit it previously, we went. I liked a lot, so I think the combination of the coastal landscape, the border between two countries and the context of the story, give special singularity. The site is somewhat nostalgic, more than to be on side of Portbou cemetery. It is worth to soak up the history of Benjamin and his tragic end. To get only you have to walk from the small cobbled beach of the village to the hill that houses the cemetery. It has no cost, and the views are wonderful...

  • Just visit the Memorial of Walter Benjamin and at the same time we have been listening history during the trip of the Group of SERVAS mountain. Only monument is worth a visit to Portbou. It excites, devoted to the sea, as the only output of the life to escape the horror. Today keeps people "pulling is the sea" pair flee for similar reasons. Because this monument makes me think and meditate and its design is a success. I recommend, as they did with us not look much the environment online, best surprise you get and enjoy it live will surprise you!

  • So many times I've visited this monument and continuous emocionandome everytime I see it! In Portbou, Dani Karavan has done the best work of his life: A metallic, staggered, half-buried, rusty, cold tunnel passes through shale rock to offer us the vision of a bit of sea, arremolinandose around some rocks. As land art, magnificent piece. As superb memorial, reminiscent of the character, his work, his ideology...
