The Sanctuary route (II), the Virgin Mary of the Miracle

Nature trail, to enjoy on mountain bike or by foot, which aims to recover the routes that lead to the area of Riner and Pinós in search of the two great Marian sanctuaries of central Catalonia: Nostra Senyora de Pinós and Mare de Déu del Miracle. The latter, evokes the apparition of the Virgin Mary on that spot in 1458 to some young shepherds from the farmhouse near Cirosa. Together, they form one of the best examples of Renaissance and Baroque architecture in Catalonia, with notable examples of art such as the fifteenth century carving of the Virgin or the altarpiece of Charles Moretó (1758). Since 1901 it has been a Benedictine priory dependent on Montserrat. You have, then, a reminder of the routes and shortcuts that pilgrims took in the past in order to worship those places where the Virgin Mary had appeared.
