Torreciudad, Spain -- The Shrine of Torreciudad displays a new web page

The new web page for the Shrine of Torreciudad has three main sections: “What is Torreciudad,” “Organizing your Trip,” and “In Support of the Shrine.”

The first section offers background information for people who have not yet visited the shrine: devotion to the Virgin Mary, the shrine’s historical origins, and its relationship to St. Josemaría and Opus Dei. This section also includes information about the Music Department (which organizes the International Organ Cycle), and about the Mariological Institute, which publishes the theological review Scripta de Maria.

The section “Organizing your Trip” provides the information needed by those who plan to visit the shrine: timetables, maps, climate information, how to get there, hotels and other lodging in the area, places of interest nearby, etc. There is a special section for groups (schools, parishes, travel agencies) and another for family celebrations; it also offers a virtual visit to the shrine with the help of 360º images.

The third section is for people who already know Torreciudad and want to help make its activities known: a video channel, photo galleries, a digital bulletin, messages to our Lady, a quarterly journal, etc.

The sections “News” and “Visitors” offer those who visit the shrine a chance to speak about their experiences, with links to Facebook and Twitter. The website also provides a schedule of activities at the shrine for the next twelve months and special activities at Torreciudad, such as World Youth Day, the Way of Santiago, and solidarity projects.
