Basilica Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Built between 1940 and 1958, this basilica carved out of granite stone is a monument to the dead of the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). Of monumental dimensions (the nave is 262m long and the cupola is 42m in diameter), it houses the funerary stones of José Antonio Primo de Rivera, founder of the Falangist Party, and that of General Franco, together with the coffins of 40 000 soldiers and civilians from both sides in the Civil War. Note the Pietà on the door carved by Juan de Ávalos and the beautiful wooden Christ by the sculptor Beovides.
