Tower of the Virgin Mary, ready for its crowning star - Tower of the Virgin Mary, ready for its crowning star
On November 9, the twelve wrought-iron stars that top the crown on the tower of the Virgin Mary were placed.
The crown, roughly six metres tall, is a stone piece ending in twelve points that support twelve wrought-iron stars. The stars wrap around the lower part of the shaft, on an ascendant diagonal path towards the central cross.
As laid out in the works schedule, the first level of stone panels on the crown were installed in the first quarter of 2021. After the shaft went in, in October the second level of panels rose up, which support the stars.
The main star is scheduled to be put onto the tower of the Virgin Mary in late November. It will be lifted into place fully assembled, with its twelve points, measuring seven and a half metres across.
