Air-raid shelter of Massarrojos
The Massarrojos Refuge was built in 1938 directly excavated in the geological subsoil. The plant is elongated, with 125 m. long, 2 wide and 10 deep. It has two entrances, one at Plaça del Soñador and the other at the beginning of today’s Benet Bosch street.
Inside we find two rooms: one used as an infirmary, with an adjoining blind well, built taking advantage of a natural cavity, and the other as an engine room.
On the walls we can still see part of the tubes for the electric lighting system that was never completed, as well as large nails where manual lanterns were placed. The shelter even had a ventilation system. It had capacity for 230 people.
Space closed until the implementation of the educational activity program in January 2024.
