    BOUCLE DE LA RETIRADA
    CH 96

    La retirada is the name given to the exodus of the Spanish Republicans in 1939, they were fleeing Franco's future dictatorial regime. It is an episode in the history of Spain that is well known in the region because it had great repercussions for the Catalans in the north. Indeed, even today anyone who lives in the region ends up knowing a son, a grandson of a Spanish refugee whose family has settled here, close to the border, in the hope of being able to return home quickly. Disappointed hope, hence their fixation in France, and especially here. This looped itinerary allows us to take up some of the paths taken by the Republicans during this period.
