    Valley of The Fallen

    by lashr1999 Updated Jul 22, 2005

    The Valley of the Fallen or as the locals say Santa Cruz del Valle los Caidos is a worthwhile visit. It was commissioned by General Franco as an attempt of reconsiliation after the Spanish Civil war. The site consists of a huge 500 foot cross on top of a rock with a basillica carved within the rock below.

    See the Columbus Monument

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the Plaza de Colon near the cultural center you may admire the monument to Christopher Columbus (1885) by Jeronimo Suñol and Arturo Mélida. It's quite tall, and rather Victorian in its style.
