Description

A graceful gothic gem

As the Sagrada Família eloquently illustrates, 55 years is quick when it comes to constructing great churches. The fact that Santa Maria del Mar in the Born district was built so quickly is one of the reasons for its unity of style; it represents the finest example of Catalan Gothic architecture.

The beautiful interior contains graceful columns that rise up to the vaulted ceiling and the excellent acoustics make it a popular venue for classical concerts.
