Forests, bunkers and villages on the French border. Family outings on charge of the Memorial Museum of the Exile

Would you like to experience, at firsthand, which role did the landscape and the villages from Alt Empordà had played during the Exile period in 1939? The Memorial Museum of the Exile MUME organizes one Sunday a month a guided family visit in order to discover on-site the relationship between the villages, the mountain and the exile.

Children and adults could visit the Elne Swiss Maternity Hospital, the concentration camp of Argelès, the Mina Canta in the La Vajol forest, a little red area in Agullana, the bunkers from La Jonquera and Dani Karavan’s monument addressed to the memory of the philosopher Walter Benjamin located in Portbou, among other places of special historical interest.
