Monastery of "Santa Maria de la Valldigna"

The Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria de la Valldigna is one of those who were dismantled and sold during the seizure of Mendizábal in 1836. 

The consequences of 150 years of neglect are clearly visible, his acquisition by Generalitat Valenciana in 2003 marked the beginning of the consolidation and partial recovery of these ruins a titanic task that continues today. 

We are in the outbuildings of the called the Abbot's Palace, and in the background we see the main church of the convent. Highlight in these ruins the small group of arches located on the first floor, which once were sold and incorporated into the Palacio del Canto del Pico de Torrelodones (Madrid) and after your purchase has been returned to its original place. 

The place deserves at least a visit, the ruins as the beautiful and dignified Valley (Vall-digna) if full of orange trees, whose view is more spectacular if one chooses to drive to Barx village.

Dit panorama is genomen in Spain, Europe

Dit is een overzicht van Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
