LIGHTING THE TIBIDABO
In the framework of the global initiative “Luz de la Esperanza”, P (A) T illuminates the temple of Tibidabo from 7:00 p.m. in honor of the road victims. This initiative was launched in 2007 by the French association “Esperanza” and invites the lighting of a light (candle or even the lighting of cell phones or torches) and the lighting of houses, porches and emblematic buildings of the city.
Join the initiative and light a candle!
