La Moreneta

Recommended
The 12C polychrome wood statue of a Black Madonna, known as La Moreneta to Catalans, is displayed in the monastery of Montserrat. According to legend she was found in a mountain cave by shepherds. She is placed in a niche above the high altar, that can be reached from one of the lower chapels on the right-hand side aisle of the church, and receives a steady flow of pilgrims. The services and Gregorian chants by the monks here are of great beauty, in particular at Christmas and Easter.
