Torreciudad was built in the early 1970’s under the auspices of Josemaria Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei, who was born a few miles away in Barbastro. The Sanctuary occupies a commanding position in the foothills of the Pyrenees on an outcrop overlooking the lake at El Grado.

I will restrict myself to pictures but there is more information about Torreciudad on their website www.torreciudad.org

There’s a lovely little chapel hidden away, you need to ask for a key…

The views are amazing…

 

All in all a spectacular visit.
