What is Torreciudad?

Torreciudad is a Marian shrine to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, who showers her Son’s graces on us and returns us to joy, which is the fruit of the personal experience of interior renewal. Under this invocation of Torreciudad, the Virgin Mary shows her intimacy with the daily struggles of people and their families. She has generously attended to their requests for more than ten centuries.

It is located 24 km (approximately 15 miles) from the City of Barbastro (Huesca, Spain), in a place where, since the eleventh century, Christians have venerated the Virgin Mary under the invocation of Our Lady of the Angels of Torreciudad. The image of the Virgin is a Romanesque-style wood carving of great beauty and serenity in which the Child Jesus is shown sitting on His Mother’s knees as on a throne.

Situated in a place of great natural beauty, the original watchtower from the Arab period, gives its name to the area: “Turris Civitatis”, Torre-De-La-Ciudad. Together with the old tower, rising over amazing cliffs, is the old hermitage, built over medieval vestiges.
