Freedom Trail Tour in Catalan Pyrenees
The Freedom Trail is an essential walking tour to live and feel a part of the history of the twentieth century more closely, you will discover the mountain frontier used in the war surrounded by a landscape of mountains, lakes and peace
The Pyrenean border, far from being a barrier, has historically been for the people of the area a territory of connection and exchange, the Path of Freedom. For several years (1936-1945), the crossing of the border became a vital objective for thousands of victims of war and repression.
For 6 hours, we will travel to the past, crossing the border on foot through the high mountain passes as the fugitives of the dictatorships established on both sides of the Pyrenees, with the Freedom Trail we discover the most emblematic stories and places: another country, another language , other customs... An epic that deserves to be remembered to influence the need to protect peace and democracy.
