The festivals of the city of Zaragoza are in full swing. The streets in the city center hum with activity, and only a few meters away from El Pilar, in one of the most charming hotels of Zaragoza took place its traditional El Pilar party. At Hotel Sauce in Zaragoza we celebrate the festivals with our guests and friends, because Zaragoza citizens we feel very proud of these special days.
The Basilica of the Pilar is without a doubt the emblem of our city and we, the citizens of Zaragoza feel very proud of it. One of the hidden gems of the Basilica is the organ that you can find inside. An instrument with 72 registers and four keyboards with a Renaissance acoustic box that dates back to 1462.
Thanks to an exhaustive restoration, the organ sounded again with all its splendor. In our hotel we had the chance to host the fabulous team in charge of working on the restoration and modernization of this instrument. This team is back again, and it would be better if there were no need to but, unfortunately, the organ needed to be dismantled and carefully cleaned. The goal is to finish all the works and have the organ ready for October 12th, the Day of the Pilar.
In this Interview´s Edition we have the pleasure to present you the team in charge of the works, his name is Orgelblau.
