Description of Workcamp:

REGION.- Region of Aragуn. Province of Huesca.


Anyone who would like to give a helping hand in restoring

community heritage on a historical pilgrimage route


Continuing the tradition started in the year 2000, the work camp

proposes that the work undertaken in 2008 should also benefit the

Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route (a UNESCO World Heritage


The chosen site is located at the point where the Paseo de los

Melancуlicos meets the Picaubй forest track, just above the

railway tunnel leading into Canfranc station from the south.

It is a solidly-built edifice in reinforced concrete which blends

into the landscape and lies partly underground. The bunker is

reached by a trench which runs parallel to the forest track,

leading to a covered gallery giving access to the various rooms

where the guns were positioned.


The participants will first be informed by experts about the

history of the site, with emphasis being placed on the symbolic

nature of the project and the benefits it will bring to others.

Participants will completely clear and clean the site, removing

vegetation, rubbish and waste by hand and employing simple and

appropriate tools.

However, any item related to the constructions of the site will

be kept and/or recorded and will be placed in a place determined

by the Aragonese Regional Government’s heritage services.

The rubble and rubbish which the participants clear away will be

placed in an appropriate container so that it may be taken to the

local tip.

Once these tasks have been completed, participants will make and

install whatever information points and signposts are deemed

necessary to ensure that the site and its new purpose is apparent

to passers-by.
