What Would Be Done

De Rivera’s grave is next to the altar at a basilica in the Valley of the Fallen in the Franco mausoleum. This has been renamed Cuelgamuros Valley.

Meanwhile, Franco’s remains were removed from there in 2019, which angered far-right activists who still cherish his memory.

De Rivera’s remains will be moved to Madrid’s San Isidro cemetery as part of the government’s drive against symbols of fascism.
