parsley patron saint

Notre Dame du Coral is the patroness of our ancient catalan village. When rain is predicted and it is not favorable the old inhabitants know what to do. An image of Notre Dame du Coral is put in the heart of a nest of freshly picked parsley to call in the sun.

The hermitage is at about an hour walk towards the mountain pass which makes the border with Spain. Every year on August 16th pelgrims come here. A day to put Notre Dame in her parsley nest.
