The unusual shape of the mountain Pic de Bugarach is the source for some people tome come up with some unusual theories. A group of New Agers believe that the mountain contains aliens living in a spacecraft. This group also believed that the end to the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar would result in some form of apocalypse on 21 December 2012. But at that moment the aliens living in the mountain would emerge to save them. Both events didn’t happen.
