Routes

The “Perseguits i salvats” (Persecuted and Saved) project has made it possible to recover and indicate the evasion routes that Jewish refugees used to cross the Lleida Pyrenees during the Second World War. There are four signposted routes that run through the comarques (local districts) of the Val d’Aran and L’Alta Ribagorça, El Pallars Sobirà, L’Alt Urgell and La Cerdanya. More
