I found in Camposancos a little stone Church on the other side of the Concentration Camp. You can see both on the photo.
Unfortunately it was closed.
Approximately 3,000 prisoners Asturian, men, women and children were locked up in the concentration camp of Camposancos in the Pontevedresa locality of La Guardia during the Spanish Civil War. There the machine of pro-Franco repression sent to many militants and republican combatants after the fall of Asturias in 1937. Many of them did not leave there.
It was really a pity that the building was close and seems abandoned.
This was a Concentration camp settled in the property and buildings that had been property of the Jesuits. Located to the borders of the river Minho, almost in his mouth, in Camposancos that belongs to the municipality of La Guardia in Galicia. The property surrounded by high walls, counts on great separated buildings by ample patios, which in their day were used like school and dormitories of the internal school run by the Company of Jesus (Jesuits).
I didn't go to this restaurant but i suppose it would be nice to take a meal there because it is just by the river and it has an enjoyable view.
I went visit Camposancos by ferryboat. I took it in Caminha – Portugal and it was a really nice ride. It takes about 10 minutes and it costs only 1,20 two-way tickets (60 cents/ ride). The Ferryboats timetables are:
From Caminha to La Guardia
- from 1 October to 30 June
Portugal»Spain – hour by hour from 8 am to 7 pm
Spain»Portugal – hour by hour from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm
- from 1 July to 31 August
Portugal»Spain – hour by hour from 8 am to 9 pm
Spain»Portugal – hour by hour from 8:30 am to 9:30 pm
Favorite thing: On the restaurant building by the river I read that they make cruises on the river Minho, twice a day. I think it must be a great and enjoyable ride. Next time I will take on for sure!
