Tortosa: the light of the Ebro.

The Light of the Ebro is a permanent outdoor video mapping installation, pioneering in the country, with regular projections during weekends.

Tortosa has a privileged history that this unique video mapping brings to life in a striking way. The location where the cathedral stands today is a space where life has pulsated since the very origins of the city. It is the same site where the Romans built the main temple of the forum, later converted by the Visigoths into their religious centre, and then replaced by an impressive five-aisled mosque erected by the Andalusians. It was succeeded by the Romanesque cathedral and, finally, the current Gothic cathedral with its stunning Baroque façade. All these buildings will rise again thanks to the magic of mapping.

The Light of the Ebro invites you to travel through time in this spectacular video mapping on the façade of Tortosa Cathedral, where you will discover the mythical origins of the city and some of its most significant moments, from ancient times to the Baroque era. With multiple visual effects and play of lights, it creates a breathtaking and emotional spectacle.
