When did Franco, personally, first visit Barcelona after his troops occupied it on 26 January, 1939.

There was a victory parade in its streets on 22 February. Was this the occasion of Franco's first visit after the occupation?

Many thanks,

Sid.

Franco arrived to Barcelona on February 21st. He attended the military parade from Coll Portabella house (Diagonal, 508). At 13.30pm. he went to the Palace of Pedralbes. Then he visited (with his wife) Montserrat on the 25th and returned to Barcelona on the following day. He returned to Madrid on January 31st. He also visited Tarragona, Reus and Lleida.
