Black Madonnas in Montserrat

May 04, 2005

So does anybody know anything else about the Black Madonnas mentioned in The Secret Life of Bees?

It was really interesting... as I was reading this novel, I was also doing research for my upcoming trip to Europe. As I was reading about Spain, I came across the Montserrat monastery near Barcelona, which is, strangely enough, home to one of the more famous Black Madonnas in the world. How wild is that? I will, of course, be scheduling a visit!
