Sitting back, recollecting my thoughts as I look above to Our Lady of Montserrat. There’s so much as a fleeting glance that you get as you line up to venerate her in the niche. But then as you descend and move back to this beautiful chapel built in romanesque and gothic styles. Ah, and to discover that the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) worked on this chapel while being an apprentice to the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano (1828-1901) who was commissioned for the apse of this Basilica!
