MYSTERY monolith turns up in the ruins of a church in Spain
Spain hasn’t been left out of the global obelisk obsession as a mysterious metal monolith has appeared among the ruins of the church of Santiago in Ayllon, in the municipality of Segovia, Castilla y Leon.
The town major said she had visited the monolith herself on Monday morning, December 7 and described it as a very rudimentary structure, formed by three metal sheets placed on the ground, which looks like it could collapse at any moment.
Several outlets had reported that the council asked people not to visit the obelisk in anticipation of the ‘hundred of visitors’ expected to flock to the ruins to see it, but the mayor has denied this, explaining that she herself visited the monolith on Monday morning, December 7. Mayor Sanz described it as a rudimentary structure, formed by three metal sheets placed on the ground, and looking like it may collapse at any moment.
Spain’s is the latest in a long line of similar structures to mysteriously appear around the globe, the latest of which appeared on the Isle of Wight and in The Netherlands. Monoliths have also turned up without explanation in Romania, Utah and California.
