An icon of Catalan Gothic architecture

  • One of the city's most iconic religious landmarks 
  • Impressive, airy interior
  • Low-cost guided tours available 
Built between 1329 and 1383, the Santa Maria del Mar is an enduring example of Catalan Gothic architecture. While a 1428 earthquake and 11-day fire during the 1936 Spanish Civil War destroyed some of the church's decorative elements, the imposing structure has largely remained unchanged through the centuries. It's been a landmark in the trendy El Born neighborhood since. 

Note that the inside of the church is closed from 1:00PM-5:00PM in the afternoons.
