Religious tourism: The Marian Route

The Marian Route is an itinerary guided by the spirituality which links Zaragoza, Torreciudad, Montserrat and Lourdes. Aragon is home to two of these pilgrimage sites:

The Sanctuary of Torreciudad is located in a place of great natural beauty, in Upper Aragon. The guardian Virgin Mary is a Romanesque carving belonging to the so-called black Virgins. The origin of the devotion is in an old chapel situated a few metres from the watchtower from which the sanctuary gets its name.

According to tradition, the Catedral-Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, in Zaragoza, is Christianity’s first Mariano temple, as preserved and worshipped there the pillar (a veined marble column) which is said to have been placed there by the Virgin Mary, who appeared in flesh and blood before St. James the Apostle. In addition to the image of the Virgin, the temple also houses important artistic treasures: the altarpiece at the high altar, the Santa Capilla, the choir and organ, and frescos by Goya.
