Huge basilica in a beautiful plaza. It is free to get in (after 5pm for sure and maybe all the time).
Built around 1329, it is a great example of Catalan's Gothic architecture, large medieval building with great light and spacing.
It is probably better than the actual Cathedral of Barcelona. This masterpiece is placed in the Born neighborhood, very close to the Barceloneta one, where there is the sea (Mar). If you pay you can get to see the terraces, but it is enough to walk in and enjoy the magnificent gotic architecture.
This elegant 14th-century church will take your breath away. Don’t be put off by the somewhat austere exterior – the basilica inside is similarly sparse but simply spellbinding. The church is constructed in the Catalan Gothic style; a three-nave structure with the side naves half the width of the central one. Aim to visit on a Sunday – if you’re lucky, you might catch a wedding ceremony being performed inside. There are also concerts that take place here regularly (check the schedule in advance for full details).
A beautiful example of gothic architecture. This basilica is truly a testament to the ingenuity of the engineers. The way the medieval neighborhood grew up around the church almost makes it feel constrained on the outside. But through the masterful design it is spacious and filled with light once you enter
Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar is a church located in the heart of El Born that dates back to the 14th century. Even though it's more than 700 years old, the church is still active to this day. It's a great place to stop by, spend a while and appreciate the beautiful gothic architecture.
The most beautiful church in Barcelona. Simple and peaceful... It's just wonderful.
You can walk from the apartment to this beautiful cathedral. The most beautiful in the city!!
