Alberto de Pedro – 55 Atocha street

I found myself with some free time midweek for the first time in ages. Alberto had sent me a photo text at 5am, no message just a photo of a door. I headed out to find it. And did. The photo is of Carabanchel prison where during Franco’s dictatorship a lot of political prisoners were kept. The door Alberto chose is the location of what became to be known as the Massacre of Atocha, where 5 lawyers were murdered in a politically motivated action in 1977 during Spain’s transition to a democracy.

More photos can be found on Escrito en la Pared:

In this house the men named below worked for liberty and died defending it on 24th January 1977
