2007 Barcelona, Spain

In June of 2007, we visited Barcelona, located in the Mediterranean coast of Spain. We also spent one day in Montserrat, a mountain outside Barcelona containing a Benedictine abbey, Santa María de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary. Afterwards, we took an overnight train to Paris.
