A day visiting the sights of Milan...... so much to see and all so beautiful. Everyone needs to visit Italy to experience
it's wonder! There is no place on Earth like Venice...... incredible.
While in Italy we stayed in a small village named "Gromlongo" situated outside of Milan about 40 miles. The villas
in Gromlongo were rustic and charming offering privacy, balconies, fireplaces, and all the natural comforts one could want
( peace, nature's sounds, fresh air, and breathtaking views of the valley below). Pictured here is Mireia Cruz with akita
The below picture was taken in January 2001 in a restaurant on the grounds of Montserrat. Located west of Barcelona on top
of a mountain surrounded by huge rock formations ... this is where the Virgin Montserrat was discovered and a church was built
there in her honor. Thousands go to visti this unique place to take in the beauty and to respect the Virgin Montserrat.
in the restaurant we were served the Spanish dish "Paella". You've never had Paella unless you had it in Spain
where it is the best you can imagine!
This is a picture of a portion of the Montserrat church. We are standing infront. The picture portrays it's beauty but the
true beauty is to be there and see first hand it's details and true magnificence. A memorable day with my wonderful friends
the Cruz Family.
We are pictured sitting within the ancient walls of the Castle de Tossa situated along the Mediterranean sea. Such beauty
is difficult to capture in a picture.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the treasured pictures capturing the precious
moments of my trips to Italy and to Spain.
