Late dictator General Franco's heirs stripped of summer palace by Spanish court

Sept. 2, 2020

MADRID A Spanish court stripped General Francisco Franco's heirs of the late dictator's summer palace and ordered it to be transferred to the Spanish state, which had claimed ownership of the estate as part of a move to erase the dictatorship's legacy.

Built between 1893 and 1907, the Pazo de Meiras palace in the region of Galicia was acquired in 1938, during the civil war, using public donations.

Judge Marta Canales said in her ruling on Wednesday that the donations were not destined for Franco himself "but to the head of state."
