Information

The first stone of this tower was set on October 7th, 2005, the day of Nuestra Señora del Rosario's festivity, after a mass in her honour. The Church Tower is one of the greatest symbols of identity of Torre Pacheco, also reflected in its emblem.

According to the elders, it was like a lighthouse that stood upright in the middle of the Campo de Cartagena. On the 7th October 2010, after 38 years of silence, the bells were rung, and it was inaugurated on the January 6th, 2011.

The new tower has a modern design, during the day the result is a simple but clear geometry, a prismatic and continuous volume in height, differing from the church with steep forms so that both volumes are highlighted. The material used in the first section is large blocks of stone from Cabezo Gordo, the second section is alabaster (the material in which the Virgin of El Pasico is embodied) and the upper part is transparent glass with a clock.

From this place you can see the stained-glass window at the back of the church, which represents the Joyful Mysteries, birth and first stage of the life of Jesus. A lily appears at the top, reminiscent of "The Annunciation", a dove symbolising the Holy Spirit, and the star that guided the Three Wise Men to Bethlehem. Finally, there are some doves and some scrolls.
