Pseudonym: Foucellas
Category: Bandit
Birth Date: 22nd October 1908 (†6th August 1952)
Birth Place: Curtis (A Coruña)

He worked in a dairy and in the coalmines in Ponferrada. When he returned to Curtis, he worked in a timber yard. After the revolt against the Republic, Benigno went into the mountains for fear of reprisals for having helped the Resistance fighters. From that moment, he became a partisan, which made him meet the Civil Guard on several occasions although he could not be captured until 1952, when he was hidden in a cave with his guerrilla partner. He was judged and convicted to death, being executed in prison in A Coruña.
