Black Madonna of Montserrat

Montserrat is one of the Black Madonnas.

She was found in a cave, up in a mountain called Montserrat, near Barcelona, Spain.

The mountain of Montserrat has been of religious significance since pre-Christian times.

It is believed that the image of the Madonna was located somewhere else but was moved to Montserrat in 718, to avoid the danger posed by invading Saracens.

Later on was found in a small cave by some shepherds.

Legend has it that the Benedictine monks tried to bring the statue down from the mountain the a town below, but the statue became very heavy and could not be move.

The monks decided to construct their monastery around it.

The statue's sanctuary is located at the rear of the chapel, where an altar of gold surrounds the icon, and is now a site of pilgrimage.

 

They say that the Holy Grail was once hidden in Montserrat, and others think that it is still there...
