Tortosa: The Light of the Ebro

Projecció de la llum de l'Ebre a la catedral de Tortosa

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

Tortosa has a privileged history that this unique videomapping brings to life in a striking way. The location where the cathedral stands today is a space where life has pulsed since the very origins of the city. It is the same place where the Romans built the main temple of the forum, later converted by the Visigoths into their religious centre. Subsequently, the Andalusians erected an impressive mosque with 5 naves, succeeded by the Romanesque cathedral, and finally, the current Gothic cathedral with its impressive Baroque facade. All these buildings will rise again thanks to the magic of mapping.
