High Catalan Numbers

Above the village of Beuda towers a mountain. Sitting atop is a sanctuary, restaurant and library with stunning views of the Catalan countryside. Luckily I experienced nice puffy clouds and a fair sunset on this trip. Mare Déu del Mont’s altitude is up there in Catalan numbers, including the Pyrenees.  The area has many extinct volcano cones throughout the landscape.
