If you love the mountain you will love this recommendation. Grab a backpack and make the most of the exceptional mountains and valleys that form our country. The proposal comes from the Diputació de Lleida under the name “Persecuted and Saved” and allows walking along some of the mountain paths that cross the Pyrenees that were used for the Jewish fugitives escaping the German army during the Second World War.

From over 20 documented paths only four have been recovered and included in this tour, with the accessibility and the proximity of an urban area in mind.

These tours include a path that goes up to about 1900 meters, that some of the 40.000 fugitive Jews used to escape from the invaded France, looking for a break in Andorra before continuing their escape journey to Catalunya. You will also be able to discover the historic, cultural, supportive and natural from the country, including the visit of some of the places where the prisoners were held, as well as some lodgings and hideouts.

Each path has its charms that will allow you to enjoy some of the most impressive views and sceneries in Catalunya, and some of the main historical buildings in the whole country, as the unique Romanesque Cathedral of Seu d’Urgell.

We highly recommend you to see the promotional video edited by the Diputació de Lleida. It will finally convince you to visit the area if you aren’t convinced yet.

We haven’t got the chance to enjoy any of these tours yet. But we want to hear your recommendations and see your pictures.

Explain us your story and we will publish it together with your pictures on our site.
