The councillor was working late in the town hall in Vegas del Genil on February 3 when the air suddenly turned cold.
He told local newspaper Ideal: 'It was unusually cold in the office so I put on my coat and then got up to go to bathroom.
'That's when I heard a strange rustling sound in the hallway, like someone was dragging files across the floor.'
Staggering around the dark corridor he decided to take a photo of the hallway.
When he examined the picture later he noticed the haunting ghostly image of a child.
According to the Local, the councillor locked himself in the officer before sending the photo round the council's Whatsapp group.
One of the councillors invited a local Reiki practitioner to carry out a 'cleansing session' in the corridor and she reported 'feeling a presence'.
But keen to play down any fears of spooky visions, the town mayor Leandro Martín hit back.
He said: 'He (the council worker) sent us the photo and told us that he had a strange vision.
'The truth is that we all take it as a joke.'
He added: 'I am a sceptic. It's not true that it is inexplicably cold. It is a collective psychosis.'
