About Centre d'Interpretació 115 Dies, Corbera d’Ebre
The Centre d'Interpretació 115 Dies in Corbera d’Ebre is a museum dedicated to the bloody Battle of the Ebro in the Spanish Civil War.
The Battle of the Ebro took place between 24th July and 18th November 1938 and was one of the final offensives launched by the Republican forces. Their defeat left Republican military capabilities severely diminished, paving the way for the eventual Nationalist victory.
The offensive was launched by Republican leader Juan Negrin, who was trying to relieve pressure from the Madrid front. The initial Republican attack failed to achieve a breakthrough and the resultant Nationalist counter-attack left the Republican forces in tatters and led to the withdrawal of the International Brigades.
The Republicans lost at least 30,000 dead and 20,000 wounded, while the Nationalists lost at least 30,000 killed and wounded.
The Centre d'Interpretació 115 Dies contains a number of exhibits that shows the battle’s progression and uses a number of video and audio guides to take visitors on a journey through the history of the battle.
It is a good place for those interested in the Ebro Battlefields to begin their travels and provides excellent views of the surrounding areas where much of the fighting took place.
