Madonna around 50 A.D. and brought it to Spain. While in Spain, it was hidden from  the

Moor and then later rediscovered by the shepards. In 880 A.D. , the shepards and the Bishop

of Manresa were drawn to a grotto by a bright light and heavenly music. Upon discovery of

the statue of the Black Madonna in the grotto, the Bishop of Manresa suggested that it be

moved to Manresa. However, the status was too heavy that it could not be lifted. As a result,

the Virgin remained in Montserrat and continued to be venerated there for centuries. As

years progressed, a number of chapels were built upon the site and in the 11th century,

the abbot-bishop Oliba founded a monastery on Montserrat, next to one of these chapels.
