Three hundred years after a romantic drama unfolded in Teruel, Spain, workers begin to restore the city’s San Pedro Church. But as it happens, the job doesn’t just bring the building back to its former glory. You see, as diggers shovel the ground at the ancient structure, they hit what turns out to be two sets of human remains. And thanks to that discovery, a mysterious piece of Spanish folklore – the truth of which has long been debated – may have just become very real indeed.
Yes, the unearthing of the mummified bodies could answer questions that have lingered in the Spanish consciousness for years. Even today, tourists continue to flock to the city that painted the backdrop for a tale that is not just romantic, but also thrilling and tragic.
