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.



Mont Saint Michel

As a teenager, I have always dreamt of one day visiting this abbey.  It conjured in my young imagination then, a place of mystery.  The opportunity came six years ago on a pilgrimage/tour of France and what a marvellous place it was!  A place I would love to visit again one day.
