Description

The Collapsed Gorge, or Los Caidos Valley, is a poignant homage to the 40,000 victims who are buried under their ashes. The enormous construction includes a basilica and tomb complex set north of El Escorial in a mountain gorge. A 500-foot-tall memorial stone cross is reportedly the world's tallest statue of its kind.
