Nestled next to the Tourist info place on the Rambla, it's easy to miss this odd little monument to the murdered journalist. Google his name for all the info:)
There is another monument honouring him near the air raid shelter and playground near the Wall access at Placa de Jacint Verdauger I Santaio. The statue there is a bronze of a plaster done in 1939, bronzed in 2009, 70 years since the journo Carles was murdered. Interesting that you can get the statue, the medieval wall and a childrens' playground all In the same photo. I have included photos from the second location that are linked to the first monument.

This monument stands in tribute to Carles Rahola Llorens, a Spanish (or Catalan if you prefer) journalist , writer , historian and politician. This monument was in memory death sentence and execution when the Nationalist forces entered Girona during the Spanish Civil War.

The monument consists of a square pedestal with the name Carles Rahola carved into it. Atop the pedestal is a sculpture and I literally have little idea what it's supposed to depict. It appears to be 2 women standing in a row. The woman behind has her hand on the shoulder of the one in front. The women in front could be scratching her neck wondering, "What the heck am I supposed to be?"
