Santuario de la Virgen de Nuria
The Sanctuary of the Virgin of Nuria

The history of the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Nuria:

In addition to the aforementioned areas, it is worth knowing that this tour makes it possible to visit the interior of the Sanctuary of Mary, the Holy Virgin of of Nuria. This is one of the Marian sanctuaries to which the Catalan people, as well as many tourists, have a great devotion.  The story which was put together by Francesc Marès, tells of St. Giles, a priest who had arrived from Nimes in around 700 A.D. in the Vall de Nuria and then spent 4 years living as a hermit.  Subsequently, in around the year 1000 A.D., arriving in the valley from Dalmatia, he was reported to have seen a vision in which he was commissioned to find some objects belonging to St. Giles.  Said objects were, an image of the Virgin of St. Giles, a cross, the pot in which he prepared his meals and the bell with which he summoned the shepherds.  These items are all still present inside the basilica and are venerated by pilgrims.  Another interesting feature of the Sanctuary is that the Virgin of Nùria wasn't just venerated as the protector of the shepherds' flocks but also as the patron saint of women and their fertility.  In fact, tradition has it that if a woman wants to have a child, she should dip her head inside the pot and ring the bell to ask for this gift from the Virgin.
