Went to Sant Pere del Burgal near Escalo in the Pyrenees a few days ago to see the 11th century frescos in the church by the Master of Pedret.
Below the Holy Family and the saints, Llucia de la Marca is represented. She was the Countess of Pallars Sobira and the sister of the heroine of my first novel, Almodis the Peaceweaver. The originals have been removed for safekeeping to MNAC Museum in Barcelona and the church has very good reproductions in their place. It was good to imagine them in situ and to see the situation of the monastery.
Also visited medieval tombstones in Tirvia which show the deceased persons’ occupations.
