Saint Agustin's church

    The church of Saint Agustin, Belchite, note how the left tower has been destroyed by artillery fire and the rough state of the one on the right. Clearly this building has been knocked about from without and you must take my word for it that this is even more obvious from inside. There is virtually no evidence of fire damage, unlike that in the church at Oradour-sur-Glane, just that due to high explosive shell and bomb bursts.
