Areces I (Field of the Basques), Las Regueras, Asturias. (2016)
A dovecot stands beside a trench where locals buried some 80 gudaris, as soldiers of the Basque army were called. Around noon on 23 February 1937 the pressure of the Francoists forced the army to retreat in disarray, preventing the evacuation of the 80 wounded from an improvised field hospital established in the Palace of Areces. They were discovered and murdered ‒ mostly by bayonet.
