Google Maps: Why Is This Mysterious Building Being Kept Secret On Street View?

Google Maps: Why Is This Mysterious Building Being Kept Secret On Street View?

Usually when we write about Google Maps, it's all about the weird and wonderful things that have been accidentally snapped during Google's attempt to document the entire world. We've seen topless women, men urinating on vehicles and even a freaky lady wearing an over-sized cartoon head. That's why it's come as a surprise that a mysterious location in Spain has been totally hidden from public view. What could be more offensive to the general public than a willy?

Whatever it is, it's on the south east coast of Spain.

Why Has Google Maps Blurred Out This 'House Of Horrors' on Street View?

Some of the aerial views from Google Maps are spectacular. You can zoom from Shanghai to New York on your lunch break or search for some crop circles in Texas on the bus ride home. But if you look closer at the coastal town of Almeria in the south of Spain then there's something you can't see. A giant square (or rectangle if you're being particular) has been completely blurred out.

Patio de los Naranjos, which translates to Orange Tree Yard actually sounds quite cute until you realise it could be at the centre of a dark government conspiracy. Zoom in as much as you want, you aren't seeing past this digital smokescreen. Nobody really knows what's hiding underneath, but I don't think there's just an orange tree in this yard. Two buildings can be made out though - a government office and a courthouse.

Some may say that the proximity of the government buildings is the plausible reason for the censoring of the square.

Does Spain have its own version of the infamous Area 51?

It wouldn't be the first time that governmental or military centres have been blurred out by Google maps. However I'm sticking to my guns. There are definitely aliens there, don't @ me.
