I have been traveling in recent weeks and have mainly focused on video rather than still photograph; also because of the slow internet access I have not posted on a daily basis as I intended to do.
This is just one of the many things one can admire inside the Cathedral in Burgos, Spain.
Some thirty miles from Barcelona, on a mountaintop, a Benedictine monastery dedicated to the Black Madonna, a focus of pilgrimage for Catalans and the whole Catholic world.
From the veranda of my hotel room in Lourdes, France, I was able to admire the Chateau fort de Lourdes, once a castle since the 8th century, a royal prison from the 15th century, and a museum from the 20th century to the present.
From up the hill, by the Castillo, one can see the panoramic view of the old city of Burgos, Spain.
Avignon, the city where the Medieval popes went into exile, persuaded by a woman named Catherine of Siena, to return to its rightful See, Rome, the eternal city.
