A GROUP of nuns have been fined €170,000 by the Junta for beginning upgrades on a 17th century organ without permission.

The culture ministry has sent the fine to the Clarisse nuns of Sevilla’s Santa Ines convent for restoring the temple’s organ.

The sanction will be reduced to €102,000 if they voluntarily pay the fine.

The organ is an item of cultural interest

The organ, by 17th century artist Perez Valladolid, has been a Property of Cultural Interest of the Junta de Andalucia since 1983.

The sanction was imposed after technicians discovered the nuns had transferred the organ to a different workshop than the one that was sanctioned by the Junta.
