La Retuerta I (Bend of Death), Villagatón, León. (2016)
Seven people were murdered on 4 August 1936 at this bend on the old highway from A Coruña to Madrid. Detained in Ponferrada in the first days of the military uprising, the seven prisoners were told that they were going to be transferred to León. They never arrived. The vehicle transporting them stopped shortly before arriving at the Alto del Manzanal near the bend of La Retuerta, where they were shot.
