Between Pradell de la Teixeta and Torre de Fontaubella there is a railway station beside a tunnel. In this tunnel the 12th train hospital was established. It attended to the battle of Ebro's injured people. Four days after, on 28th July 1938 it went to Guiamets, being substituted by the 20th train hospital. The soldiers who died in those trains were buried in the cemetery of Torre de Fontaubella, what soon remained so small. From that moment, the soldiers opened a ditch in a field of hazels nearby to the tunnel, in the known place like Les Moletes. When this ditch remained full, a new pit next to a nearby homestead was opened.
