News from Spain that a set of sixteenth-century reliefs that were stolen from the church of Santa María la Mayor, Olvés, have been returned to the region. The reliefs were taken in 1989 and were recently rediscovered when someone brought them in to an auction house for a valuation. They will now be displayed in a secure case within a museum connected to a local church.
