Fodor's Review

Almería, the last bastion of the Republican government during the Spanish Civil War, was hit by 754 bombs launched via air and sea by Nationalist forces. To protect civilians, 4½ km (2¾ miles) of tunnels were built under the city to provide shelter for more than 34,000 people. About 1 km (½ mile) can now be visited on a tour that covers the food stores, sleeping quarters, and an operating theater for the wounded, with its original medical equipment. Visits, which are guided, must be booked by phone in advance.
