A big local cemetery takes in the corpses of many of the victims of the Paracuellos de Jarama massacre.
In November, 1936, Paracuellos de Jarama and nearby Torrejón de Ardoz were, along several days, the location of what is commonly known as the Paracuellos massacres, likely the biggest act of mass murder performed during the Spanish Civil War, when at least four thousand suspected right-wingers, both military and civilians, including many women, were shot and then buried in common graves by Spanish Republican soldiers and militiamen.
