for the Spain they believed to be better:
in Zaragoza, the Sacrario Militare Italiano

The Sacrario Militare Italiano is a Mausoleum in Zaragoza for the Italian soldiers killed in the Spanish Civil War. Funded by Benito Mussolini it was completed in 1940.
Although initially the objective was to honor only those belonging to the Corpo Truppe Volontarie, sent by fascist Italy, after the fall of this regime, due to the demands of the new government, the remains of Italian volunteers who fought in the defense of the 2nd Spanish Republic were also buried in the Sacrario Militare Italiano. The monument consists of a monumental tower and the convent Church of San Antonio de Padua, attended by the Capuchin Franciscan friars.
These photos were taken in September 2019.
