The Cathedral-Basilica of Our Lady
of the Pillar , Spain - Catholicism
The Basilica venerates Blessed Virgin
Mary, under her title Our Lady of
the Pillar praised as "Mother of the
by Pope John Paul II.
It is reputed to be the first church
dedicated to Mary in history.
Local traditions take the history of
this basilica to the dawn of Christianity
in Spain attributing to an apparition
to Saint James the Great, the apostle
who is believed by tradition to have
brought Christianity to the country.
This is the only reported apparition
of Mary to have occurred before
her believed Assumption. Many of
the kings of Spain, many other foreign
rulers and saints have paid their
devotion before this statue of Mary.
Saint John of the Cross, Saint Teresa
of Ávila, Saint Ignatius of Loyola,
and Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
are among the foremost ones.
The Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar
is one of two minor basilicas in the
city of Zaragoza, and is co-cathedral
of the city alongside the nearby
La Seo de Zaragoza. The architecture
is of Baroque style, and the present
building was predominantly built
between 1681 and 1872.
