Civil Guards stand at the entrance of the Valley of the Fallen, near Madrid, as members of Federation of Forum for Memory, gather on November 19, 2011, during the commemoration of the 36th anniversary of late dictator General Francisco Franco’s death. Commissioned by and with design input from Spanish dictator Francisco Franco, the Valley of the Fallen is designated as a monument to victims from both sides of Spain’s 1936-39 civil war, which led to Franco’s rise to power. But for many Spaniards, the memorial site — carved into the side of a mountain in part through the forced labour of political prisoners and featuring a 150-metre-tall (500-foot) granite cross — is their country’s most divisive and potent reminder of the Franco era.
