It was posted on July 18, in Spanish. It is hideous (imo). But not quite as bad as the graffiti it has been subjected to over the years. It must be cleaned periodically, otherwise it would be worse. What's wrong with people? Can't they leave things alone? You know the old saying, "Take only photos, leave only footprints." I hope to attach my first photo of the boundary stone, taken in 2003, 1-A_21.jpg

and one taken in 2014:

and one taken in 2016:

I like the 2003 version best.

Too many and too often!
I read the article through machine translation so I may have missed some nuances. It seems to me that Anton is more annoyed by the new concrete bases than the monument itself (which personally I find more than ugly enough in any case).

Yes, it's the base that he objects to. I would say that the stone is a boundary stone rather than a monument. It wasn't ugly in 2003. And, yes to C Clearly, it's not an actual tomb, but that's what Anton has called it.

Camino Frances (2012)
It wasn't exactly a beauty spot in 2012. It was a pretty ugly monument to begin with. I don't think putting a more robust base on it has made it any worse and I imagine in a year or two it will either have weathered a bit or be covered in as much grafitti as the marker stone so won't look as out of place. Better than it lying on its back once the soil has eroded.
