Caves and Monasteries

032Saturday we went with our Meet up group, NCAT, for a tour around l’Espluga cave –  apparently one of the longest in the world. It has had a long history, going back to the neanderthals and there is evidence of other human use. But it’s tied into natural and human history and evolution, which makes for an informative and inspirational visit.  We only went as far as the tour in the first part of the cave. The second part is for speleology activities, and I haven’t been to it… yet! Wouldn’t mind doing that one day. Afterwards there was a reconstruction of a Stone Age village, which you can see in the picture above.

After that a few of us went to the Monasterio de Poblet, which really took us through layers of history.036
