"The Chancery of Granada keeps in a room, as if it were a museum piece, the vile club that until a few years ago was used to execute the condemned. In Granada there have been several executioners. However, two have gone down in history: Lorenzo Huertas, executor at the end of the 19th century, better known as 'Master Lorenzo' or 'head cutter', and Bernardo Sánchez Bascuñana, the last one, who died in 1972.

The story goes that the two executioners dressed the same way when they had to work: with a black cape and a wide-brimmed hat, and this is how they say the strange figure appeared in the Royal Chancery. The apparition dates back to 1988, when a building cleaner witnessed the appearance of a figure, faceless, but dressed in a black cape and wide-brimmed hat. Seconds later, the figure disappeared at the end of the corridor, the corridor where the vile club is still kept."
