Stolen stones


We recently visited the Cloisters Exposition from MET. It is really a complete, interesting and amusing trip for a sunny Saturday morning. The exposition is sited at the top of the Manhattan uptown and you have to take a long journey to reach that extreme of the island. Once again you can find there another new city to discover. That solely is worth doing the travel but it's not all. The Cloisters are at the top of a hill rounded by a nice park. So you can enjoy the park as you climb the hill on foot. Once there you find a very nice views of New Jersey and the Hudson river from Manhattan.
I went to the Cloisters ready to stand the vexing contemplation of the stolen stones from the Sant Miquel de Cuixà Monastery in the North Catalonia. In fact the exposition is called cloisters because of precisely these robbed stones. However I did never expect major humiliation such as finding there the whole tomb of three Catalan counts of Urgell. Shame. Injustice.
Devolution right now!!!!

Tres comptes d'Urgell?? jajaja

Què fort, es van endur fins i tot els feretres!

Ara que...ESTAN correctament indicats? o encara hem de patir que ens diguin espanyols o francesos???

Però quants claustres hi ha? el de Cuixà i prou?
