Refugio 307 is a historic air raid shelter that was built during the Spanish Civil War. Tucked away in the Poble Sec neighborhood, the shelter is part of the Museum of History of Barcelona (MUHBA). Made up of 200 meters (656 feet) of tunnels, the shelter was dug and built by older men, women and children since most of the abled-bodied men were off fighting on the front lines. Holding up to 2,000 people, the shelter was made of clay to help absorb the shocks from possible gunfire, and a lime coating on the interior to prevent humidity. Visitors can take a tour of this historic Spanish landmark on Sundays with group tours offered throughout the week.
