Monument to Blas Infante, Father of Andalusia, erected in the same place where he was executed without trial by rebels in 1936
Blas Infante Pérez de Vargas (Casares, Spain; 5 July 1885 - Seville, Spain; 11 August 1936). Blas Infante was an Andalucista politician, writer, historian and musicologist, known as the father of Andalusian nationalism(Padre de la Patria Andaluza).
Infante was among numerous political figures who were summarily executed by Franco's forces when they took over Seville at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. As both a regional autonomist and a kind of libertarian socialist, he twice "merited" inclusion on their liquidation list.
His last residence in Coria del Río now hosts the Museum of Andalusian Autonomy.
