Magnificent Montserrat’s Natural and Manmade Beauty

This week my piece about the monastery and Marian shrine at Montserrat, Spain is printed in Ireland’s Own magazine. I visited Montserrat in June and was moved by its natural beauty and the splendour of its basilica. While my husband trekked up a path above the plateau where the monastery complex is situated and took some stunning photos, I sat in the church and enjoyed its architecture and the singing of the resident boys choir (I’m not always so lazy but I didn’t have time to do both and I wanted to hear the choir!). I couldn’t wait to put pen to paper and write about the place as soon as we got home from our holiday. And it’s lovely to see your holiday snaps (more correctly – my husband’s snaps. He is the better photographer!) later in a magazine!
