Greetings All,

The 2010 iberianatureforum Summit was based around the Sierra de Guara and Monegros areas, and true to our stated intent of including all aspects of life on the Iberian Peninsula, a visit was made to Belchite, the site of a minor, but symbolic, battle waged during the Spanish Civil War.

Pending further details from a friend who is an expert on the war, and bearing in mind that history is written by the victors, the following may be of interest:
