43.7336087,3.5486945 With funds from John D. Rockefeller II. large parts of the sculptures and the cloister were taken down around 1900 and later mixed (!) with parts from other churches restored in the New York museum "The Cloisters".

However, even local institutions like the archeological museum in Montpellier also removed important parts illegally.

In one of the side rooms of the cloister a documentary movie shows what happened in detail.
