Erecciones Completas (10.30pm and 12am)
The Shelters of Gisbert Street were built in 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. Excavated in the Conception Hill, they were the largest shelters in the city that could accommodate 5,500 people.
From the beginning to the end of the war, Cartagena suffered repeated bombings by the German and Italian aviation. The reasons for these bombings were the fact that the harbour was the Republic’s naval base, the place where support to the Republican arrived and it was the second center of war industry in the Republican zone.
In 2006, Gisbert Street shelters opened to the public allowing people remember some episodes of our recent history.
