Inscription(s)

En abril de 1941, y hasta octubre de 1948, se instalo
en este edificio el Tábor de Regulares, integrado por
soldados españoles y del protectorado de Marruecos.
Este lugar, construido por ellos en 1943, es conocido
como el "Parque de Los Moros", en recuerdo a los
norteafricanos que se asentaron con sus familias, y
convivieron con nosotros, en esta villa, durando esos
años de escasez y dictadura.
