"the Virgen Moroneta"

A moreneta is a little black woman. English speakers might assume that the moroneta Julià Travel is going to take you to visit is a stupid little woman, but Base de bandades says she is the patron saint of all Catalonia's Moroccans. (There's no direct attribution to Julià Travel on the site, but the texts are almost identical to those used on their site, where they hope to demonstrate that not being able to spell Baracelona Barcelona does not mean you know absolutely nothing about the place.)
