Santa Maria del Mar

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Basilica Santa Maria del Mar is an imposing church in the Ribera district of Barcelona, Spain, built between 1329 and 1383 at the height of Catalonia's maritime and mercantile preeminence. It is an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic, with a purity and unity of style that are very unusual in large mediaeval buildings.

This is my favorite place to meditate, look in there whenever I'm in Barcelona.
This time the unexpected surprise - someone played the organ beautifully.

The bold composition and beautiful processing bring out the majesty of this church. V.

Very nice image of this magnificent cathedral. I suppose you have read the novel:
Cathedral of the Sea by Spanish author Ildefonso Falcones. It tells the history of the building of this cathedral, which is a fabulous story.
