The Bombing Route

An exhibition about the bombing of Guernica that you can follow at your own pace

The Bombing Route is a self-guided, interactive tour that consists of 11 panels set up in different spots in the centre of Gernika. 

Each panel contains information about the bombing as well as testimonies, old photographs and QR codes that take us on a 360º virtual tour of Gernika before the bombing. At each panel, visitors can compare in situ what the place looked like before it was destroyed and how its appearance has changed since the attack. 

The panels are not in any chronological order, which means you can follow the route any way you like. Although all the panels follow the same common thread of the bombing, the content of each panel is independent. Follow the route any way you like and take as much time as you need.

If you’d like to read more about the route in the quiet of your own home, you can download the brochure from our website:
