Popular interest for mummified bodies has been a constant throughout history. Even though there are not many mummies preserved in the Basque Country, these form part of the attraction that is raised by the most venerated relics. In this sense, it is not therefore surprising that, almost until the present day, local churches have tried to be end owed with relics that have been brought from Rome, in spite of prohibitions in this regard. One of these mummies arrives to the Basque Country in 1928 and, though at present it does not possess any popular interest as consequence of the social and political vicissitudes in subsequent years, it is evident that it caused a great impact in the population from the very beginning, as attested in the press of those times.
