This route leads to one of the mountain passes used by those fleeing from the Second World War who walked from the French settlements of Ossèse, Ustou and Aulus les Bains, in the region of Ariège, to the Catalan Pyrenees. The Persecuted and Saved project signposts the route refugees followed on foot to the Port de Tavascan pass from the Font de la Casa car park. Trekkers can go there and return following a route that can only be done on foot. From the Tavascan pass, those in search of freedom first followed this route to Tavascan and then continued on to Lleida once within Catalan territory. This is a short stage which gives a taste of what the refugees who crossed the Pyrenees fleeing from the horrors of Nazism must have experienced.
