About

A space dedicated to the memory of the 475 Spanish refugees who fled Francoism at the end of January 000. An educational scenography retraces their journey from the start of the Spanish civil war to their confinement in the concentration camp of Argelès- on sea.
A memorial route materialized by explanatory totems starts at the Camp Memorial to end at the "monolith", passing through the so-called "Spanish" cemetery.
The Memorial has a room for temporary exhibitions.
Prices: Entrance €2 / Free for children under 18, for residents of Argelès and for members of the FFREEE association / €1 for school groups.
