Excellent tour of the Refugios below the streets of Almeria

This was a fascinating tour of the underground ‘refugios’ that were built and used during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939. Emilio gave us fascinating background information as we walked along under the streets of Almeria. He then gave us an additional tour above-ground, showing us yet more historical locations that were connected to that struggle. His commentary (in excellent English) brought to life the pain and fortitude of Almeria’s people during that time.
This was a great tour and we highly recommend Emilio for anyone visiting Almeria!

I didn’t end up going on this tour as there were not enough people and I would have had to pay for three people. On the day, the tour guide explained to me that I could go later in the day for free(due to one day fiesta). Friendly, completely transparent and very ethical. I’m sorry to have missed out on this tour but would highly recommend this company. Muchas gracias!
