The "Valley of the Fallen" which was under construction during Wright's tour had been finished by 1992.. I found it to be one of the creepiest places II have ever been, It was this enormous cave, excavated for the purpose of honoring
Spanish heroes of the Falange.. The two principal leaders of the Falange, Francisco Franco and Jose Antonio Rivera. are interred there along with hundreds of unnamed prisoners who were responsible for building the monument. It was gloomy and wet with drippings from above. All in all a very unpleasant place.
I am also curious about Franco's ancestry. If he was the progeny of " conversos" (Jews who remained in Spain after their expulsion in 1492) , would that have made a difference in Hitler's plans to have Spain enter World War II as part of the Axis?
The book was an interesting account of one man's experience in Franco's Spain and is worthwhile reading for persons interested in post-WWII Europe.
