Hemingway first came to Madrid as a war correspondent in March 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. He reported on the fighting between the Republicans against the fascists around the capital and in the Guadarrama mountains to the north.
From his first hand experiences he later wrote one of his greatest works, For Whom the Bell Tolls.
We now offer a unique opportunity for you to retace the dramatic events in his novel by taking our day excursion to the sites mentioned, from the bridge which the Republicans planned to blow up before a hike along the footpath to the stream where Pilar washed her feet and then to the cave where the protagonists discussed the war, ate and slept.
- Private transportation
- A coffee break and later lunch in a nearby sleepy village is included
- Prof. Ramon Buckley PhD, an expert on Hemingway, is your guide.
