Botched painting restoration makes Spanish church a tourist attraction
Catholic World News - September 26, 2012
Earlier this year, Cecilia Giménez, 80, was asked to restore Elías García Martínez’s Ecce Homo in a northeastern Spanish parish.
Giménez’s botched attempt at restoration has made the church a tourist attraction, with 1,000 visiting on a recent weekend.
