Blessed Francisco Solís Pedrajas was the parish priest of Mancha Real from 1914 to 1937, the year in which he was martyred in the cemetery of the town of which he was the parish priest.

He was a man of strong personality, a man of God as one of his biographers calls him and describes him as "a learned and eloquent preacher, full of fame (...). Strong and firm to move and move his parishioners to do something more practical than lamenting in difficult situations. Fearless in the face of death...., joyful in the face of martyrdom, with a contagious joy that moved those who were to die with him to sing to the Lord".
