    Catalonia has a tangible and intangible, forgotten, demolished, perhaps undervalued memory heritage, which nevertheless is of undoubted value. The institutions had never thought about recovering this memory heritage, to say nothing of implementing a territorial project to address the question. Only some private or association-driven initiatives --also municipal-- have recovered our awareness of memory and have observed and explained the function of this heritage. In the Bill and Law for Democratic Memory, understood not as an isolated central institution, but rather as a territory project, a Master Plan on the creation of a network of this Memory Space is being managed and designed. Very diverse and different. Spaces understood as vestiges of war, post-war or repression; as routes or paths, of exile, or freedom; as places of mourning in common graves, tombs or cemeteries or in museums and in the historical, cultural and memorial interpretation of our recent past. The paper deals with a reflection on the coordination of these spaces, strategic lines and contents. It also addresses the areas that have been delimited and studied historically and territorially, including a presentation of the models for the dissemination of the Memory Spaces. An ambitious, albeit groundbreaking project in Spain, which seeks to make progress in the concept of European memory spaces, with a new reflection on democratic memory in Catalonia.
