Description of events

Center authorized for medical attention
Date : –
Address : The Parque de los Hermanos is currently on its site.

The breadth and quality of the facilities favored it being used as a blood hospital during the Civil War. The school suffered various vicissitudes during that period as it was partially occupied by the UGT to use it as a barracks for a battalion. In addition, several bombs fell in the vicinity of the school, causing the death of a 13-year-old girl.

The school was demolished in April 1975. It occupied a part of what is now known as Parque de los Hermanos, specifically the side facing Avenida de la Libertad and Juntas Generales.

The only vestige of the school is some section of the wall that surrounded it. In it, next to the place where the bomb that took the life of a person fell, a commemorative plaque was placed that remembers all the people who defended the legality of the Second Republic.
