Santuari de Bellmunt

Suspended in the sky

The word "sanctuary" comes from the Latin "sanctus", meaning spaces delimited from the rest by their particular, sacred significance instead of profane. Many of these shrines have been set in high places near the sky. According to religion specialist Mircea Eliade, the sky became the first symbol of Humanity.

Bellmunt represents perfectly this model of the sanctuary. Jacint Verdaguer, the national poet of Catalonia, described it as "suspended in the sky". Its wooded and natural environment enhances its character of isolation, despite the modern road that comes right next to it.

Our proposal avoids this profane element and progresses from Vidrà village and places of natural beauty that only presage the glorious landscape discovered once we arrive, feeling that we are in a separate and unique location.
