Santa María del Mar

Santa María del Mar is one of the Catalan Gothic churches located in Barcelona and situated in the Born neighborhood.  It is one of the most popular touristic sites in all of Barcelona. It was constructed between 1329 and 1383 and consists of three interior naves that emphasize an overall simplicity and austerity in their decoration. 

The highlight of the exterior façade is a graceful stained glass rose window that is more typical of the Gothic period.
