The guerrilla leader Ramon Vila Capdevila - last of the Spanish Maquis, who held out from the end of the Spanish Civil War until being killed in 1963 - is buried in Fígols. On 15 July 2000, a plaque was placed at the burial site of Vila which reads
Here lie the remains of Ramon Vila Capdevila. Militant of the CNT and the last of the Catalan anarchist maquis, he was involved in the proclamation of libertarian communism (1932), the civil war (1936-39), and the French Resistance (1939-45) and, for a further 18 years, the fight against Francoism. In memory of him and of all who gave their lives for freedom and the anarchist ideal
