    Hi Herrzak,

    I've been to Barcelona many times, but unfortunately, nothing WWII oriented in the city as far as I know. You can still see battle damage from the Civil War downtown and around the city. There are some battle sites just a few hours away in southern France, or if you had the time, a nine hour express train ride could get you down to Gibralter, where there are nice WWII British fortifications. Enjoy your trip, Spain is a beautiful country with friendly people.

    Down at the harbour opposite las Ramblas you will find antique market stalls, they often have WW2 items but the fact its Barcelona & the Pound/Euro is rubbish then you & I both know it wont be cheap!
    Have a great time. The nightlife is fun

    I would have thought that if one was going to Spain then it would be for Spanish Civil War 1936-39 shopping-has a connection to WW2 as the Germans, Italians, French & Soviets were involved both as participants & suppliers of equipment, some of which remained in Spanish service for many years after.
