Montearenas (A-6 motorway), Ponferrada, León. (2016)
The construction of the A-6 motorway, and the expansion of the National-VI and an industrial estate entailed the loss of several mass graves. Human remains are often found during major engineering works, and operators are under pressure to cover them up so that the construction work is not stopped. There are 60 documented murders in the Montearenas area, but there may be more than 200. One victim was Bernabé González Cañas, 29, who was shot and buried in a mass grave on 20 September 1937.
