Step back in time as you take to the skies in a fully restored Spanish Civil War airplane. Gain deeper historic understanding of the intricacies of the war, the political complexities of the various allies, and the brutality of brother forced to fight brother.
War is terrible, civil war is tragedy. Learn how this catastrophe shaped the local cuisine, wine, psyche and very landscape.
The tour is led by a former fighter pilot and diplomat, and emphasizes the importance of peace-building and reconciliation efforts around the globe, while also acknowledging that what every soldier longs for is a return to the normal of before: a glass of wine in an un-scarred land. We toast the memory on both sides.
