In 1984, on the occasion of the IX Anniversary of Torreciudad, the custom began to come on a pilgrimage to enthrone the Patroness of a sanctuary, hermitage, town or country and leave a replica of the image as a souvenir. Currently, there are more than five hundred images of the Virgin on display on the ground floor next to the confessional chapels. They come from the five continents and are witness to the universality of Marian devotion.
Any entity can organize a pilgrimage in which they honor their Patron here. We recommend contacting the Tourism Office of the sanctuary to specify the various details: characteristics of the image, schedule of events …
On that day there is usually an entrance procession with bells and singing of the Patron Saint’s hymn. It is advisable to send the image beforehand to prepare the litter. The central act is the Eucharist, which can be celebrated by the priest of the locality or the entity. A municipal band or a chorus of the population may accompany the acts. If you have a hymn or a Joy, you can send it in advance for the sanctuary organist to play it during the entrance procession or at some other time.
