Valle de los Caídos

Valle de los Caídos or 'Valley of the Fallen' is a monumental site located northwest of Madrid. It can easily be spotted by the huge, prominent cross that rises more than 150m above the valley.

This monument was built as a memorial to honour those who fell during the Spanish Civil War, click here to find out more.
