The multimedia projection created by ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño recalled the most important historical and spiritual milestones related to the apparition of the Virgin Mary at the Cova da Iria.

It was projected on the facade of the Basilica of Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima (Portugal) on the 12th, 13th and 14th of October.

More than three hundred thousand people witnessed the live multimedia projection “Fatima-Tempo de Luz”, presented on the 12th, 13th and 1th of October at the Sanctuary of Fátima (Portugal). The production, created by ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD), helped the Sanctuary put the finishing touch on the events celebrating the Centenary of the Apparitions.

The “Fátima-Tempo de Luz” show had an exceptional projection screen on the facade of the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima, of 3,100 m2, where thousands of pilgrims witnessed the impressive narrative that recalled the most spiritual and historical landmarks related to the appearance of the Virgen Mary in the Cova da Iria.

The show combined mapping projection, lighting effects and an original soundtrack, using 22 projectors – 10 of them 22,000 lumens each and another 12 of 30,000 lumens each – with a total power of 580,000 lumens and a resolution of 15,900 pixels. Also, the show had a total installed power of 137,200 watts of sound and 16,800 watts of illumination.

In line with ACCIONA’s commitment to sustainability in all its activities, it was a “carbon neutral” show. The CO2 emissions linked to the event will be offset, for a total final emission balance of zero. In addition, it has been an event accessible for people with reduced mobility, since it will have a reserved area from which they can enjoy the show without any visual limitation.

Projects like the one developed during the Centenary of the Apparitions of Fátima celebrations are part of the “Cultural Engineering” project, with which ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño bets on putting value in the history, heritage and traditions of a certain place through technological innovation, social innovation and sustainable development to enhance tourism and cultural interest.
