ONE of ‘The 13 Roses’ executed by Franco’s forces during the Spanish Civil War is to be honoured in Jaen.

La Carolina Town Hall, in Jaen is to make Ana Lopez Gallego an honorary mayor.

Born in the town and dead at 21, Lopez Gallego was one of 13 young women and 43 men shot by a fascist firing squad in Madrid.

The executions were immortalised in director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro’s 2007 film, Las 13 Rosas, which won four Goya Awards.
