The 81-year-old art lover, Cecilia Gimenez, who infamously restored/ruined a 19th century fresco, in Zaragoza last month has offered to help fix the mistakes she made - while also requesting royalties for the painting's new-found fame.
Cecilia hit headlines around the world over the summer when she applied a paintbrush to the painting in Borja, Zaragoza, distorting the face of Jesus Christ beyond recognition.
But now the church where the painting is housed has become a tourist attraction. The painting was of little historical significance before Gimenez got to work, but now Ryanair is offering discounted fares to Zaragoza to give 'fans' a chance to see the work. You can even buy t-shirts of the 'restored' Ecce Homo.
Is it worth making a special trip to Zaragoza to see this internet meme in reality? Zaragoza is a pleasant city and is ideally situated between Madrid and Barcelona if you are driving or taking the AVE high speed train between the two cities. The city has two cathedrals and a fabulous Moorish castle, probably the best example of such architecture outside Andalusia.
My Big Three Suggested Itinerary, which helps you plan a trip to Spain's three biggest cities (Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia), features Zaragoza as an extra to break up your journey between Madrid and Barcelona. But bear in mind that Borja, where the painting is situated, is 67km outside of the city and that most of the sights in Zaragoza can be seen in half a day.
