Walks with history

Among all the mythical correspondents who covered the Spanish Civil War, Ernest Hemingway is undoubtedly the best known of all. In 1937, he moved through our mountains to cover the Republican offensive over Segovia. After the conflict, he wrote a novel about those events, mixing reality and fiction and recovering for literature some of the most emblematic places in Guadarrama.

The purpose of this route is to follow in the footsteps of the protagonist of the novel, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, Robert Jordan, a member of the International Brigades, who, aided by a group of anarchist guerrillas, has the mission of blowing up a bridge in the Valsaín valley.

The novel moves around this event as it shows us a more or less recognisable landscape that we now intend to explore with the great American writer.
