Default Civil War Memorial

At the top of the cafe area alongside the Calvary Steps is a memorial to those who died in the Civil War.

Does anyone happen to know the inscription?

Perhaps its to do with the republican prisoners that were here in the war, the were held in concentration camps in Pollensa and forced to work on the roads, if you check out this link it is to Facebook friend who has posted this about it. http://alternativa.balearweb.net/post/109420 you will need to translate it!
