There is also an area where a mass grave is known. Both the town hall, the Xunta, and the Government refuse to show a minimum of attention to the events that occur there. Families from all over Spain travel there to find out about their lost beings. And they are amazed that there are playful excursions and concerts... There are thousands of places to do these activities... But in concentration camp, where there was so much death and pain...
It is a pity that you can not visit more often, I miss guided tours throughout the year. It's beautiful.
