Refugio of Cervantes

The Refugio of Cervantes is one of over 25 shelters used by the people of Alcoi during air raids in the Spanish Civil War.

It is an underground shelter, stretching for over 100 meters, which now houses an exhibition of information and aerial photographs of the raids carried out by the Italian Savoya 79 bombardiers.

The exhibition also includes an interactive screen showing the military targets and a video featuring first hand accounts from people who lived through the attacks on the city and their consequences.
