The Provincial Prison for women in Barcelona, the main female penitentiary along the First Francoism, was originally a Correccional General de Dones (General Correctional for Women) of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan Government, 1936-1939).

Execution of Carme Claramunt Barot
Throughout 1939 and 1940, 12 inmates from les Corts were executed (10 during the first year). The executions, by firing squad most of them, were carried out by the sandy areas in the “Campo de la Bota”, on the outskirts of Barcelona, after the women had paid the customary visit to the chapel at the Presó Model.
