On 4 December, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, the roughly 800 windows on the base of the tower of the Virgin Mary were lit up. This was made possible by the 214.582 people from 85 countries who participated in the action the Sagrada Família is promoting that invites the whole world to take part in lighting up the tower progressively.
The action will continue through 8 December on the website estel.sagradafamilia.org, where anyone interested can click their symbolic flash of light to help illuminate the tower in real life. During the first period, from 1 to 4 December, the contributions went to light up the base of the tower.
Participants can collaborate with another flash of light to illuminate the shaft of the tower on 6 December from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
The lighting will be visible from the street and streamed on the Sagrada Família social media on 6 December.
On 8 December at 7:15 pm, there will be a live broadcast on the same website, estel.sagradafamilia.org, of the blessing of the tower of the Virgin Mary by His Grace The Most Reverend Cardinal Joan Josep Omella i Omella, followed by the lighting of the star.
The Sagrada Família encourages everyone to take part in lighting the tower at estel.sagradafamilia.org.
