Siniestro turismo de guerra del ’38

Viajeros de la Ruta de Guerra n° 1 en recorrido por Cantabria y Asturias [Material gráfico]. Sólo algunas de las fotografías tienen, al verso, mecanografiado el nombre del fotógrafo (Marqués de Santa María del Villar), se deduce por la apariencia que el resto pueden ser del mismo fotógrafo. (ca. 1938). Las rutas de guerra eran itinerarios turísticos oficiales (creados en el verano de 1938 en plena Guerra Civil) dirigidos al público extranjero por la España denominada ‘liberada’. El bando nacional creó rutas turísticas de guerra para traer a visitantes extranjeros a las regiones que habían caído bajo su control con un doble propósito: propagandístico y económico (conseguir divisas).

Travelers of the War Route No. 1 on a tour in Cantabria and Asturias [Graphic material]. Only some of the photographs have, on the verso, the photographer’s name typed (Marqués de Santa María del Villar), it can be deduced from their appearance that the rest may be by the same photographer (ca. 1938). The war routes were official tourist itineraries (created in the summer of 1938 in the midst of the Civil War) aimed at the foreign public to visit the so-called ‘liberated’ Spain. The national side created tourist war routes to bring foreign visitors to the regions that had fallen under their control with a dual purpose: propagandist and economic (earning foreign exchange).
