The Mercat Municipal

The Mercat Municipal of Felanitx was built in 1936, shortly before the military putsch under Franco. A year after its inauguration, the market hall was converted into a municipal prison to house numerous internees, convicts and dissidents, objectors to the incoming nationalists. The Civil War was a dark period in Felanitx, an era that until today no one likes to talk about openly. The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 30th, 2014.
