Sixteen inhabitants of Gavà were killed between March and December 1938 in a series of aerial bombing raids. Gavà was a military target because of the Roca factory, which produced projectiles, and the new strategies made no distinctions between military targets and the civilian population. One of the responses to this threat was the construction of air-raid shelters.
You can learn about these events in a tour of Gavà and a visit to the shelter.
There are guided tours on the first Sunday of each month. Schools and groups must book their visits in advance at the Gavà Museum.
