On 23 August 1971, at number 5 Rodriguez Acosta (now 5 Real Street) the Pereira family was about to experience a strange manifestation in their home. Maria Gomez Pereira spied a strange formation on the hearth of her kitchen. A spot that evolved with each passing day until finally the face of a person appeared before her.
Shortly after, many different faces appeared on the floor, male and female, their expressions changing and growing in intensity. Vigorous scrubbing would not erase the images nor would the faces leave despite Miguel's attempts to destroy them with his pickaxe.
Kodak and the parapsychological laboratory at Freiburg University carried out careful analysis of the experimentation photographs, which showed the photographs to be authentic. Photographic manifestations included the apparitions of hands and claws in photographs.
German de Argumosa had also taken electronic voice phenomenon (evp) samples at the Pereira home with startling results. Human cries and moans could be heard on the recordings and include messages stating:
She goes with all the men"
"Hell begins here"
"German, scratches, patio, raises cement"
"I continue buried"
Shortly after Maria's passing the Sociedad Española de Investigaciones Parapsicológica carried out an extensive examination of the famous floor and confirmed that the faces continued its evolution with each passing day.
The house and its mysterious kitchen floor had survived the blitz of curious onlookers, scientists, paranormal enthusiasts and investigators over the past 3 decades, leaving experts in the field no closer to the truth than they were 33 years ago.
On July 2004, the house with its evolving faces was placed on the market. Its future and its owner are not yet known.
The house remains a living testimony that there are some things on this earth that continue to elude scientific explanation.
