Likewise, and at the proposal of the City Council of Portbou, the procedures have begun so that the Memorial Passages be declared a National Good of Cultural Interest, because it is a real estate property of architecture and sculpture of historical interest, artistic and social; to be a symbol of culture and peace, to make reference to the philosophy of the history of Walter Benjamin, for his incomparable human and symbolic values; due to its urban location in symbiosis with the construction of the cemetery of Portbou, which has contributed to reinforcing the image of the portbouenc landscape and its identity.
