Faces of Belmez
On August 23, 1971, María Gómez Cámara noticed that a dark spot in the shape of a face had appeared on the cement floor of her house. After showing her husband Juan Pereira and their son, Miguel, the two men decided that the face on the floor should be removed. The two set about the floor with a pickaxe and destroyed the face.
After they relaid the floor with cement nothing appeared for a few months. In December of 1971 several dark spots began to appear on the floor and by February of 1972 they had all turned into faces, with new ones appearing and some seeming to move across the floor.
