These images have continuously formed and disappeared on the floor of the home. The phenomenon is considered by some parapsychologists the best-documented and “without doubt the most important paranormal phenomenon in the [20th] century”.

Various faces have appeared and disappeared at irregular intervals since and have been frequently photographed by the local newspapers and curious visitors. Skeptical researchers have performed extensive tests on the faces and believe that fakery has been involved and the images have been applied with lead paint.

The faces are dismissed as a hoax and it has been suspected that the Pereira family may have perpetrated the hoax for financial gain. However, the Pereira story goes, a new face formed on the floor.

Instead, the floor concrete was cut out and taken for study. By Easter of hundreds of people were flocking to the house to see the faces. For the next 30 years the Pereira family claimed that faces continued to appear, both male and female and of different shapes, sizes and expressions.

There are some cements such as the aluminous, derived from aluminous and lime materials, that are black melanocratic. However, in his report Alonso does not indicate the percentage of said cation, nor its structure, resistance to compression, elasticity module, chemical resistance or other characteristics necessary to differentiate a Portland cement from an aluminum cawas. Neither Bender nor de Argumosa published an official report on them.

Argumosa, a Spanish parapsychologist, spent two years evaluating what he believed was a Gothic mystery, but published nothing on the subject either. Bender did acsas the case in passing and referred flmmarion it in some of his lectures. His crucial statement referred to the sealing of areas of the floor where some faces were in progress with a transparent plastic material:.
