Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar

The Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar or St. Mary of the Sea Church is a Catalonian Gothic church built in the 14th century. The church is situated in the Ribera district of Barcelona, Spain. It is highly distinguished for its exquisite architecture, which was the work of architect Berenguer de Montagut. The church was built to commemorate the conquest of Sardinia by the Catalans, and was patronized mostly by merchants and ship owners. During a 1960s excavation, it was discovered that a Roman necropolis used to stand on the church's grounds between the 4th and 6th century.

  • Tour the impressive and spacious interior of the Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar, which features a towering central nave adorned with arches and octagonal pillars that are quite distinct from all churches in Barcelona.
  • Explore the three facades of the church, which are located on Santa Maria Street, Paseo del Born and Santa Maria main square, and are representations of Gothic architecture that is unique to Barcelona and the Catalan region.
  • Visit the Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar on a Sunday at 1 p.m. to witness the highly regarded choir performance.

The Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar is located in Plaza de Santa Maria and is quite accessible via Barcelona's public transportation network. Visitors to the church can take Barcelona metro underground system and get off at Jaume I station, which is the nearest metro station to the church. From this station, the church is only a 3-5 minute walk away. Another alternative for commuters is to take the city bus service that stops at Via Laietana-Argenteria. This stop is also just a few minutes' walk from Santa Maria del Mar.
