Catalonia’s very own Holy Land: Montserrat.
This place houses the Black Madonna, the patron of Catalonia. This sculpture is said to be sculpted by St. Luke in 50AD and was brought to Spain in his conquest to spread God’s word. This was found in a cave on Top of the mountains of Montserrat on 80AD. The Bishop of Manresa suggested to bring the figure down in Manresa but the figure became extremely heavy when they tried to bring it down. It appears to be that this is a sign for the people to build a fellowship of God in Montserrat. From then on, the pilgrimage to Montserrat began. #BarcAlonea #BondVoyage
