The Cave

Ernest Descals - Painter 

La Cova

In the year 1522 Saint Ignatius came down from Montserrat to Manresa on foot. He spent eleven months here, a very important period in his life as well as for the Society of Jesus in the future. His favourite place to pray was the cave on which the Centre of Spirituality is built at present. The experience felt by Saint Ignatius here would flourish later and would bear its fruit: “The book of the Spiritual Exercises.”
