Liborio Alcázar Montes

Liborio Alcázar Montes

Born 1876. Studied with the Jesuits. Started work as a candlestick maker and joined a travelling circus at the age of 19. Soon realized his talents were wasted and took up voyeurism around the age of 24. Spied on females around Spain and published “Observaciones salaces” in 1931, a detailed account of his activities. His work took him to Paris, where he joined the Communist Party and founded a newspaper which sank without trace. Disappeared in mysterious   circumstances at the outbreak of World War Two. To this day, the word “liborio” is used to describe a “peeping Tom” in some rural areas of northern Aragón.
