Mobile phone application
This complete guide prepares visitors and allows them to get the most out of their visit to the Sanctuary. Pilgrims and visitors can now quickly access information and photographs of all the places of interest in Torreciudad. With GPS and Bluetooth functions activated, the app itself informs the visitors about what they are looking at in each location. Thanks to a network of transmitters distributed throughout the venue, called beacons, the visitor receives geolocated data and images as they move around.
At places with images based on Christian devotions, such as the Mysteries of the Rosary, the Way of the Cross or the Joys and Sorrows of St Joseph, the app offers texts that help to meditate on these scenes and to dedicate time in prayer. It also explains how to follow the customs of lighting candles to the Virgin or tying ribbons next to Her image.
The app also contains a wide range of resources such as news, schedules, calendar of activities, audios, visits’ reservations, and a trivia quiz. It allows you to answer a satisfaction survey and also take a virtual 3D tour of the interior of the Sanctuary. It’s free and available for Android in the Google PlayStore or for iOS in the Apple Store. It has been developed by the Playmedia Motion Graphics team.
