Preventive Prison. The Old Jail. La Carcel Vieja De Murcia.

The old provincial jail of Murcia is one of the few examples of civil architecture of the beginning of the twentieth century that remains standing in Murcia. Particular importance during the Civil War (1936-39) and immediate postwar years in which next to the Convent of Agustinas are locked hundreds of political prisoners who were victims of the famous "get" with the direction of Puerto de la Cadena and Cemetery of Espinardo.
This building was of the Spanish state it has passed into the hands of the municipality of Murcia, and will become a cultural center. It kept the facade and little else.
I think it should become a tourist center where they explain the history of this building. Or at least that the history of this building do not forget. It should be remembered that there were prisoners on the inside of both sides in the Spanish Civil War.
Well, do not forget what this building was dedicated as, for example, no information on the current complex of buildings of the former artillery barracks.
