Photographer's Note

So I'm finally posting "El Pilar", although I know there are several already on TE.
I've chosen this one taken from the bridge (over the Ebro River) because the Basilica is now having a big work of restoration, so I thought it might be better this way.
The temple we see today dates from the 18th century but it was on the 1st century the Mary talked to Saint James and told him to build the temple in this place
The original church was surely much simpler than this one but it has changed along the history and now El Pilar is considered the biggest baroque church in Spain and a very important one in the Christian world.
