The lighthouse at Formentor, Mallorca

The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.

When portions of the former Spain Bilbao Mission became part of our mission in July, we began to hear rumors about a legendary pastry shop in Pamplona. Missionaries familiar with Pamplona would speak the name "Beatriz" with a quiet awe that made us wonder what this was all about. Could Beatriz' napolitanas really be that much better than the wonderful napolitanas available elsewhere in Spain?

The answer is, "Yes!" Once you have tasted a napolitana from Beatriz, nothing else will do. So when we held our training in Vitoria, Hnas. Church and Culverwell were kind enough to bring in a couple of kilos of Beatriz.

  Hnas. Culverwell and Church arrive with two kilos of Beatriz

10 euros a kilo, and worth every centimo!

  1. Oh my goodness...I love my hermanas!!! They look like they are doing so well. Send a Hi to Hermana Church.

    Love you,

  2. Every time there's a post about Pamplona it makes me wish I were there living the dream. Hna. Church is a rockstar.

  3. I want to eat that. Wow. I'd also like to support the rockstar designation for Hna Church.
