Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Barcelona / Barcelona / Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar
Cited as an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic architecture, Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar was completed in just 54 years, a remarkable feat for the time. The structure is made up of three naves of the same height, which are reinforced by tall columns 13 m (43 ft) apart—a huge distance, unmatched by any other medieval building still in existence. Known for a purity and unity of style that was rare in large buildings of its time, this imposing church features stained glass windows, but very few of the other interior decorations typically found in most Gothic churches.

Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar reviews
History come to life. I watched Cathedral of the Sea so I had to step inside. Admission was free and I didn’t take too long nor was it overly crowded. You should hit this up if you are in... more »
Short taxi or walk to this historic site for the real basilica.. see intricate details of the construction and neighborhood, a must see more »
Nice church. Inside is beautiful and magnificent. Sacred feel. Not noisy from tourists. like a large medieval building. nothing extravagant but stained windows are really perfect for its gray walls. spacious with high ceilings.
Worth visiting for sure but hey what is this with the parking?? If it's a very touristic area... SURE IT is, no need to ask, you need to make another big parking for the visitors. Streets nearby are full and they won't let you park in the empty space 500 metres from the church so tell me where I have to park...Or I just climbed up here for nothing. Anyways I was lucky to give this brilliant church a quick look. Amazing architecture ⛪❤️
