The Stone Cross, placed in 1939 at the edge of the N-152a road  has been removed recently and nowadays  the only part of this francoist symbol is the set of podiums.
According to the Democratic Memorial Memory Bank  this monument is part of a nationalist ensemble with a monolith located 50 meters from the cross. The two memorials were erected in memory of the conservative people that were murdered at the beginning of the war by the uncontrolled. It was placed during the first years of francoism with a desire to extend a memorial policy of the totalitarian regime praising the victims of the rebel side or committed by the belonging or the alleged belonging to the rebel side.”
