history explains almost everything....



we took a very pleasant trip to the village of ripoll, about 2 hours by train from barcelona.
it is a small town close to the pyrenees, full of history and  albeit being inland, it has a  very interesting cuisine. in the old days their wealth came primarily from sheep-herding so there was a thriving wool industry. paralell to it there was also an important jute industry.
 during the week i will be posting photos of the delightful ethnographic museum full of  tools of the trade and assorted textiles.

for now some photos of the romanesque  monastery.
