We review the trouble with space-time singularities within General Relativity and how gravitational theories formulated in metric-affine spaces and with a nice analogy with crystalline structures can have the key to their resolution. Focusing on spherically symmetric black holes by simplicity, we shall see the simple economy of these models in getting rid of such singularities. Some elements of the extension of this result to the axisymmetric scenario will also be discussed.
