Show sight on map

The monument to the Martyrs of Freedom, also known as the monument to the Coloraos or Pingurucho, is a commemorative column erected in the Spanish city of Almería located in the Plaza de la Constitución of the city. This monument recalls the episode of the Ominous Decade in which a group of liberal fighters, from Gibraltar and dressed in the uniform of the British navy, of a characteristic red color and that in the end would make them known as the Coloraos, arrived in the city of Almería in August 1824 to make a pronouncement against the absolutism of the time and a return to the Constitution of 1812. The monument that can be seen today is a replica of the original, which was destroyed in 1943.

Show sight on map

The Spanish city of Almería suffered up to 52 bombings from air and sea, with a total of 754 bombs dropped during the Spanish Civil War. This led to the decision to create a system of underground shelters for the protection of approximately 40,000 civilians. These shelters measure more than 4.5 km long, and they are equipped with a surgery room and a food storage room. They were designed by the local architect Guillermo Langle Rubio, being today the most important and better preserved shelters in all Europe. These refuges have stood the most important attack in all Almería's history, the Bombardment of Almería, by the nazis in 1937.
