Ruta de Sucesos de Casas Viejas

Home Manuel Quijada English

Manuel Quijada Pino was born in Casas Viejas in 1911. He worked in the fields as a day laborer and was very fond of hunting and raising dogs. He belonged to the libertarian youth together with Pepe Pilar, Gallinito, among others.

He lived in the Patio Cantalejo and there, he was arrested on the afternoon of January 11 after being recognized by the two surviving civil guards as one of the assailants in the barracks.

After being arrested, he was interrogated and tortured by Artal’s men in his own home. His wife, Encarnación Barberán, seven months pregnant, was also beaten while trying to prevent it.

Handcuffed and bloodied after the brutal beating he received, Manuel was taken to the Seisdedos house, where his sons Francisco and Pedro Cruz were, who had also participated in the assault on the barracks.

In view of the fact that the Cruz family had no intention of surrendering, it was decided to send Manuel Quijada to convince them of their surrender and that if they did, nothing would happen to them and it would avoid greater evils. Quijada, who came in bruised and bloody from the beating he received, made those inside stronger in the belief that they were not going to surrender. It did not come out of there.

Manuel Quijada burned to death at home, leaving his wife pregnant and five more children.
