Some places around the world congregate annuallu thousands of pilgrims moved by their faith. This massive movement has an impact on the environment and the people living closer to these places, therefore, it is necessary to think of interventions that have the capacity to host a large number of visitor and respond approprately to their interest, not only religious but also cultural and recreational.
Project is located in Ciudad Eten (Lambayeque– Perú). It has has the title of “Third eucharistic city of the world” because of a miracle that happened in 1649. This city is conformed by 10 868 inhabitants and it also has a territorial organization of 84km2, including: agricultural áreas, dunes, wetlands (unique in the region), and beach. These natural áreas have been affected by the unplanned urban growth and the contamination generated of the urban periphery. The city is dealing with demographic decrease and the depredation of its own resources.
The general strategy is a green cord as a natural limit to stop the unplanned urban growth and recover the conection with the natural landscape making a route through the city and the natural zones ending in an project that increase tourism and economy of the city: a religious tourist complex.
In the intervention area we find archeological remains: Santa María church (1561 – historial monument) and the old Sanctuary “Divino Niño del Milagro” (1773 – historical heritage), in a state of abandonment an deterioration. We also find a current infraestructura of worship for “Divino Niño del Milagro”, which is insufficient for cult activities. Natural resources such as dunes, vegetation, wetlands and the beach is close to the complex.
Finally the Project seeks to respect and protect the prexistance and the natural resources and thus strengthen the culture and identity. The strategy consisto on locate the program in simple elevated boxes in the sand that allow the dunes pass and that has a form do not compete with the natural and historical landscape.

Finally the Project seeks to respect and protect the preexistence and the natural resources for strengthening the culture and identity of the district. The strategy consisted in locating the program in floating boxes in the sand that allow the dunes to pass and that their form do not compete with the natural and historical landscape.
One of the main objectives is to achieve through the design of the religious tourist complex a connection between man and the sacred, using tools that the nature of the place provides. Water, natural light, air and scale stimulate the user to have a better worship and meditation. To take advantage of this tools, a translucent textile enclosure was chosen in the main pieces, which allows controlled illumination and ventilation to pass through, as well as enabling visualization of the landscape.
