Important religious and historic monument

Valle de los Caidos is an important religious and historic monument of Spain. A Catholic basilica and memorial, Valle de los Caidos was built in Cuelgamuros on the instruction of Francisco Franco to act as a symbol of reconciliation and atonement. It honors those who died during the Spanish Civil War. The monument remains controversial as it was built in large part by political prisoners. As a major Madrid landmark, the Valle de los Caidos (Valley of the Fallen) is typically included on tours of the city and its surrounding areas.
