Santa Maria del Mar

Santa Maria del Mar

This beautiful church devoted to the Virgin Mary is the best representation of Catalan Gothic acrhitecture in Barcelona. This basilica is also known as the "The Cathedral of the Sea" for the famous book of that name by Ildefonso Falcones. The light and the quiet of this space makes attending a service there a very spiritual experience; mass is held here every day.
