Freaky looking mountain range in Spain

20130615-231241.jpg
Montserrat Muntanya De Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain located in Barcelona. Some say it resembles fingers pointing up to the heavens. A wooden sculpture was found there – it is called The Virgin or “la Moreneta” (the Black Girl) for her black color. The sculpture is from the end of of the seventh century. The color is due to the transformation of the varnish over the years. A monastery was built on the mountain along with a number if churches and chapels.
The photo I took isn’t that great, but as we were driving by – it shot up out of nowhere and we all said “Wow!!!”
