The bombings in Sant Andreu

On the evening of January 11, 1938, a bomb caused the biggest massacre of the Spanish Civil War in Sant Andreu, on the corner of La Rambla (named Josep García during the war) and Carrer de les Monges (Elisa García during the war). This was the most tragic incident of the Civil War in Sant Andreu, and it profoundly affected its inhabitants.

This fatal bombing caused the death of 10 people, according to the Civil Register of Deaths of the City of Barcelona. During the Civil War, Sant Andreu de Palomar and the Ninth District (today Sant Andreu District) suffered several bombings, like other cities and villages in Catalonia and the Spanish State.
