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.

The Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar is located in Plaza de Santa Maria and is quite accessible via Barcelona's public transportation network.

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.
