Former prison : Michelin's recommendations

In this former neo-classical prison, General Rafael del Riego (1785-1823) was held before being sent to Madrid for his execution. In 1820, he forced King Ferdinand VII to accept the Constitution of Cadiz, then fought against French intervention intended to restore royal absolutism.
