Hi. I am teaching a y5/6 class about pilgrimage and wanted to tell them about Montserrat in Spain, as it is a site I have visited.
I have been collecting pictures off google and flickr etc to make a powerpoint. The trouble is I can't find any images of the room full of little babies' shoes, crushed motorbike helmets, degree certifacates etc where people come to give thanks or ask the Virgin for a favour.
I can't even remember what it is called to help me google. Has anyone got any ideas?
I went there myself and left one of dd's shoes only last Easter.

Is this the place?

Lots of pics here if so, not sure if any of them are the ones you want...

I googled Montserrat pilgrimage

I did some googling too, Mary, and got some images but not all I needed. However, while looking at your message, I suddenly remembered the word I was looking for - 'votive' offerings. I could then google it and get my image. Rather boring picture and then DH pointed out that I could use our photos! [very stupid emoticon] Thanks for taking the time to help.
