If somebody had asked me a couple of days ago what the Festival of the Pillar was I would have looked at him and thought he was joking. Who wants to celebrate a pillar ? The trouth is that this pillar is one of the most important pillars in the Spanish history. In a way this pillar represents exactly the same as the Jelling Stone here in Denmark which I showed some weeks ago. See week 35.
To tell the story very short. The Birth of Christianity in Spain
which was as early as 44 AD, almost 1000 years before the Danish
king Harald built the first church in Denmark
I am not going to use a lot of space to tell the story here.
If you are Spanish you know it, if not read all about it on these pages:
The Virgin Mary or the Lady of the Pillar is celebrated October 12 in Zaragoza and the first fullscreen was made at that day.
This date is also the date when Columbus' first sighted America.
Pope Clement XII fixed the feast day.
The Basilica of the Pillar is a very large church and it contains also paintings by the famous painter Goya who lived in this area.
The Basilica is visited daily by thousands of pilgrims.
The fullscreen shows the part called La Santa Capilla.

The monuments of Paris are among the most well known in the world. The Eiffel Tower, Sacré Coeur, Notre-Dame, Arc de Triomphe and as the latest The Grand Arche.
Designed by the Danish architect Otto van Spreckelsen in collaboration with the civil engineer Erik Reitzel
Apart from The Great Arch Spreckelsen is only known in Denmark for 4 churches. He died 1987, 2 years before the Arch was finished in 1989.
Very little mtrl is available about Spreckelsen but I have managed to find a Video about and with him at The Roland Collection
The entire film is 45 min and in Danish with English subtitles.
In RealMedia but unfortunately only works on Windows
