5/25.- Montserrat, Arcada


In this photo you can see the arcade that leads to the Basilica. On our right you can see the tomb of Bernat de Vilmarí.

The Monastery of Montserrat is a very special place for the Catalan people. It is a symbol of the Catalan culture, especially because during Franco's dictatorship, the abbot of Montserrat was a well known Catalan activist --Catalan language and culture were then repressed.
