If you read the comments it was added in 1992 during restoration.

hmmm, something doesent feel right about this. Its definately an astronaught but the section its in doesent look as wethered as the one above and seems a little to clean.
Dont get me wrong, its interesting but just seems out of place.
I would say its a photoshop job or has been deliberately put there recently to promote some mystery.
I think the second picture shows that its a recent addition, with it having no chips or pitting like the section above.

Dude several people have said the church was restored and it was put there in 1992. LOL. You guys are hilarious. If it was actually put there in 1102 don't ya think it would be as famous as the Egyptian Pyramids or any other unexplainable artifacts?

"
The astronaut, along with other contemporary symbols was added in 1992 during restoration work on the "new" cathedral. The person responsible for the restoration, Jeronimo Garcia, reportedly chose an astronaut as a fitting symbol of the twentieth century. According to an article about the restoration (in Portuguese - Click here for Google translation to English), it is a tradition of cathedral builders and restorers to include a contemporary symbol on the building as a means of "signing" their work."

What I find hilarious about this is that even if it was a 12th century carving, it would still have skeptics coming in saying, "No, it is not an astronaut, it's a man with bucket on his head!"

I'm not attacking you. But it only took a few seconds to read the comments and figure out a perfectly good explanation. Now if you can refute the comments than you have a nice solid argument/inquiry.

As the cathedral it is on was built in the 1500s, it MIGHT be an astronaut. Perhaps Charleton Heston, or Orenthal James Simpson?

It's already been pointed out but the fact remains it's a very strangely written article.

The first paragraph presents the carving as some sort of mystery:


It features magnificent stone carvings on all its walls, but one of them is a bit more special than the others, so to speak. It bears the depiction of what appears to be a fully dressed astronaut in a space suit, complete with details such as the sole of his shoes. Nobody knows how he got there, or what a 20th century astronaut is doing on the walls of a 12th century religious building.


Then in the last sentence, it admits it was put there in 1992:


The astronaut there was part of a renovation process finished in 1992, when builders were asked to include modern symbols alongside ancient ones.


Huh?

Here are a couple of older threads about it:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

It gets brought up fairly often.

Personally, I liked the demon with the ice cream cone.

Wow. I've never come across this picture before. This leaves only a few options. Time travel, remote viewing, parallel universes (that one's kinda reaching but the implications of this are astounding). Either way, according to science and history, that shouldn't exist.

Looks suspiciously like a renovated part of the church.

If you compare the block used with the spaceman carved into it and one on the (original) pieces above it, you can clearly see a difference in wear and quality.

Old churches often get renovated in keeping with the original style and craftsmenship.

I say 20th century "add-on":


The astronaut, along with other contemporary symbols was added in 1992 during restoration work on the "new" cathedral. The person responsible for the restoration, Jeronimo Garcia, reportedly chose an astronaut as a fitting symbol of the twentieth century.
