“Linea Gutierrez”

by Francesc July. 31, 2017 937 views

“Linea Gutierrez” was built by Franco’s army between 1939 and 1953. It is a line of casements, similar to the Maginot Line or the Siegfried Line, but not as strong and with less armament. The line was made up of hundreds of casements and extends 40 km between Llançà and Maçanet de Cabrenys in the IV° Military Region. From Maçanet, it continues under the name “Linea de los Pyreneos” (“Linea P.”) and passes over the chain of the Pyrenees to A Hendaye – Irun. On the whole, between 5.000 and 10.000 casements were built in the Pyrenees

I didn't know about the existence of such a defense line. Always learning. Love the airplane sketch on the wall.
