Photographer's Note

I explained to Gyorgy and Gert what the Calvary is, but it is an opportunity to illustrate it with pictures.

A calvary is a type of Christian sacred place, built on the slopes of a hill, composed of a set of chapels, usually laid out in the form of a pilgrims' way.

These function as greatly expanded versions of the Stations of the Cross that are usual in Catholic churches. Each chapel contains a large image of the scene from the Passion it commemorates, sometimes in sculpture, that may be up to life-size.

Monserrate is a high mountain that dominates the city centre of Bogotá. It rises to 3,152 meters where there is a church (built in the 17th century) with a shrine, devoted to El Señor Caído ("The Fallen Lord") and at the top visitors can walk the Stations of the Cross.

In the Workshop the photos of the Calvary in Montserrat near Barcelona.

Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain range near Barcelona. The main peaks are Sant Jeroni (1,236 m), Montgrós (1,120 m) and Miranda de les Agulles (903 m).

It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary.
