    Bones, l'estiu passat vam estar a la Mare de Déu del Mont i ens va agradar molt. La visita a la cambra de Jacint Verdaguer és curiosa, i el dinar al restaurant va estar força bé, sobretot perquè, com que ja era tard, vam poder gaudir d'una fantàstica posta de sol sobre l'Empordà. És un lloc senzillament magnífic.
