#12 Sunday 2 June

Early train Barcelona to Montserrat (serrated mountain) then the Cremallera (rack railway) to the Monastery

  • to see the Black Madonna
  • to view the ‘Red Book of Montserrat’
  • to walk

    first sighting of this magic mountain

Great day even if the ‘Red Book’ was under lock and key and the tourists were prolific and the day was hot; so good to walk; so interesting to watch the rock climbers scale the seemingly smooth and crevice-free mountains; so good to be free and happy and to have made the pilgrimage to see the Black Madonna.
