General view of the nave with cylindrical columns separating from the aisles, Sant Climent de Taull church, 1123, consecrated by Ramon Guillem, the bishop of Roda, Taull, Province of Lleida, Catalonia, Spain. The cylindrical columns separating the nave from its aisles have no capitals. The murals were removed to the MNAC (National Art Museum of Catalonia, Barcelona) in 1922, to prevent the theft. They are frescos and were removed by painting them with horsehide glue and then peeling off the hardened glue, carrying the pigments of the mural with it. Among the murals is a striking rendition of Christ Pantocrator in the central apse. Sant Climent de Taull is part of the Catalan Romanesque churches of the Vall de Boí which were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in November 2000. Picture by Manuel Cohen
