Guided visit to CIARGA and Penyafort Castle

26/04/2020, 24/05/2020, 28/06/2020, 26/07/2020, 23/08/2020, 27/09/2020, 25/10/2020, 22/11/2020, 27/12/2020

During the Civil War part of the castle-convent of Penyafort was confiscated by the republican army and turned into a prison. The church was transformed into a community cell where the soldiers of fascist troops linked to aviation remained imprisoned and the cloister was used as a prison yard.

The penalty, active until January 1939, was next to the airfield of Santa Margarida i els Monjos and was part of the set of facilities that the Republican aviation built the Penedès to combat the bombings and defend the front.

With this combined activity, we propose you to know three key spaces to understand the facts, protagonists and consequences of the application of the air war in the municipality of Santa Margarida i els Monjos: The remains of the old prison of aviators in Penyafort Castle, the old Monjes aerodrome with the visit to the CIARGA and the Serral anti-aircraft shelter that, with its 100 meters of underground gallery, protected the bombings of the pilots and the personnel of the airfield.
