This monument to the victims of the Franco regime has been vandalised several times in the past. It marks the point where patrols used to halt municipal buses going to and from Valladolid, from 1936 to 1939. Passengers were able to see the vans loaded with prisoners, and once even witnessed dead bodies on the road. In 2013, a section of the new highway linking Valladolid and León was inaugurated. The engineering works came very close to the area of the mass graves.
