Before I went into the Basilica of Montserrat, a door on the left caught my attention because of the curious painting. It was a painting of the Mystique Water Source of Life! It's called the Path of Ave Maria and it runs narrowly between the impressive bare rock and the side of the basilica. It's an interesting place, incredible for someone like me, full of small candles, and small caves where the infinite colours make it magical. Many people come here to light candles. I imagine that it's full of promises and requests. What surprised me the most was the amount of Eastern tourists who brought their own candle and made sure it was properly secured before leaving. I imagine that for them it's a curiosity which resembles the temples. It's a beautiful place, believe it or not, that's full of energy and the flickering of candle light produces moments of great beauty and colour.
I leave the car in the parking lot to enjoy this magical mountain walk and the monastery. As I walk alone I hear the sound of air that rocks the trees, the birds sing songs that announce the long-awaited spring. Civilization feels distant. My feet walk slowly, no hurry, the road is long, comfortable, beautiful and full of curiosity. Catalan peoples revere Montserrat dream figures I cannot understand, like the name of this path: Els Degollats (the slain). For once my curiosity loses to such beauty. I look up to enjoy the landscape that Gaudí understand, I understand the domes of the Sagrada Familia and the Agbar Tower, geometric shapes are the same that have so much personality to the city of Barcelona. The mold of such architectural work is here! Montserrat is so inviting, magical, love ;-)
This is a very relaxing activity to share with friends. The feeling of relaxation was perfect and all of my friends recommended it. Oh, and as there are all types of different products to use after showering, you do not need to bring anything.
