In 1971, a Spanish woman by the name of Maria Gomez Camara was cleaning her kitchen floor when she noticed that a series of eerie faces had formed in the concrete. Terrified, she ordered her husband and her son to chisel away at the faces and destroy the flooring, believing they were some sort of curse. Sure enough, a brand new face (right) formed. Upon hearing about this bizarre incident, the mayor of the town, Bélmez, forbade the new face from being destroyed. Over time, new faces formed at random. To this day, the faces of Bélmez remain unexplained.
