Montserrat abbey

The mountain of Montserrat is very different to the other mountains  because of their form. In Montserrat mountains there is the big abbey of Saint Mary. All Catalan people is devote to the virgin of Montserrat. Like the Cestokowa virgin in Poland she is black because she was in the church for centuries and the smoke of the candles made herself black face.

I’m amazed that you’ve heard about our Sain Mary from Czestochowa!I’m impressed!!! :)))) Every year people go to Czestochowa, in a pilgrimage. I was a pilgrim five times. You have to go on foot about 350 kilometers for 10-12 days. But there are people who go about 500 km for two weeks from the cities near Baltic Sea. To be a pilgim is a very popular in Poland. No matter if you are an old person, or young, everybody can go. But this is very hard. You have to have good and very comfortable shoes.
Your Montserrat is very impressing and beautiful.
