In a gothic surrounding

In the lovely Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, one of the most touristic and beautiful places of the city, there is Santa María del Mar church. A building of Catalan Gothic style. It is important to keep this fact in mind, since it will define the characteristics of the works of this style.

But, however it is classified, this church of Barcelona "has something". Something that leaves you flabbergasted, impressed that in the heart of the city there can be such a beautiful historical wonder. Solid and robust, the building displays magnificence, from whichever angle you look at it. The appearance from the outside is of rectilinear lines and has a rose window people take pictures of.

And this is only the outside. The interior without a stone cross and with three naves is impressive. The truth is that it has many outstanding architectural aspects, but even if one doesn't have a broad knowledge of art, the church will be for sure an astonishing discovery. For sure.

Of the time of the expansionist splendor

In the surroundings of the lovely neighborhood of El Born in the center of Barcelona, there is one of the most beautiful churches in the city, the so-called Santa María del Mar church. This lovely building of Catalan Gothic style dates back to 998 (that's right, 998) and is the work of the architect Berenguer de Montagut, who built it at the time of the Catalan expansionist splendor.

The inside spaces are fantastic with windows of incredible beauty, a real visual experience. The imposing columns decorate the incredible empty spaces formed by the roof, a real masterwork. In the facades one notices definitely Gothic details and the light inside is quite special.

One of the most incredible characteristics is the inside's acoustics. Listening to a choir or any concert is a wonder for your ears. Weddings are often organized and the streets get full of guests and onlookers. Inside it is allowed to take pictures and the only fact of being there is something beyond the spiritual aspect.

The cathedral of the sea

I became interested in this church after reading Ildefonso Falcones’ book about its construction, The Cathedral of the Sea. The book goes back to the 14th century and engulfs you with a story that you’ll find in the prosperous streets of a growing Barcelona, that has since become what it is today. Construction on the current temple began in 1329 by Berenguer de Montagut and took over half a century to complete.

It is the only complete great gothic Catalan church. The interior is spectacular and makes for a perfect place to meditate and reflect.

The church is impressive and coupled with reading the book, it’s a true pleasure to see it daily in Barcelona.

Solid and austere silhouette

This wonderful Gothic church of the 14th century is the emblem of the neighborhood of El Born. The temple, that can be admired from all angles, has, looking from the outside, a solid, austere and barely decorated facade. However, the stylish and beautiful interior provokes astonishment and admiration. The three naves, supported and separated by a row of very high and slender columns conclude in a spectacular ogive vault. Santa María del Mar has a suggestive aspect provoking emotion. The temple is sometimes used for choir concerts. Listening to them in this environment makes your hair stand on end.

The church of santa maria del mar is ...

The Church of Santa Maria del Mar is a gradioso example of Catalan Gothic. Dates from the fourteenth century and is situated in the district of La Ribera. The most famous feature is the fact that the church belongs to the people: they were themselves to finance the construction of commercial activities with the money and build it. Since then he suffered several fires, which still bears the scars. While outside the church is compact and granite, the interior impresses: Very high times, raw materials, glass and rose windows bright light, the whole forming a picture of great austerity. The church has also become a key element of a best-selling novel of 2006, entitled "The Cathedral of the Sea" and written by Ildefonso Falcones.

La Chiesa di Santa Maria del Mar è un gradioso esempio di gotico catalano. Risale al XIV secolo ed è situata nel quartiere della Ribera. La nota più caratteristica è il fatto che la chiesa appartiene ai fedeli: Furono essi stessi a finanziarne la costruzione con i soldi delle attività commerciali e a costruirla. Da allora fu vittima di vari incendi, di cui porta ancora i segni. Mentre all'esterno la chiesa appare compatta e granitica, l'interno impressiona: Altissime volte, materiali grezzi, vetri e rosoni molto luminosi, il tutto a formare una immagine di grande austerità.
La chiesa è diventata anche elemento fondamentale di un romanzo bestseller del 2006, intitolato "La cattedrale del mare" e scritto da Ildefonso Falcones.

The cathedral of the sea

Santa Maria del Mar is a large Gothic church in Barcelona (the Ribera district), in 1923 was awarded the title of minor basilica. [1] Built between 1329 and 1383. It seems that the work has been directed by Berenguer de Montagut. It is certainly the most emblematic example of Catalan Gothic and pure. This church is really part of the maritime history of the city of Barcelona: it was the church that all the sailors were visiting before leaving on their travels.

La cattedrale del mare

Santa Maria del Mar è una grande chiesa gotica di Barcellona (quartiere della Ribera), dal 1923 è stata insignita del titolo di basilica minore[1].

Costruita tra il 1329 e il 1383. Sembra che i lavori siano stati diretti da Berenguer de Montagut. È sicuramente l'esempio più emblematico e puro del gotico catalano.

Questa chiesa è veramente parte della storia marittima della città di Barcellona: era infatti la chiesa che tutti i marinai visitavano prima di partire per le loro peregrinazioni.

The gothic cathedral of barcelona

Photographs of Santa Maria del Mar Church taken this year. This cathedral is one of the most beautiful architectural monuments of Barcelona. I prefer this place to the Holy Family, fortunately not so famous and no so many tourists as in the other. And hopefully a monument remains discreet, humble and magnificent. These photographs were taken using a photographic technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range) in Castilian High Dynamic Range. You can visit my website at ' http://tokyography.com'

La catedral gotica de barcelona

Fotografia de la Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar tomada este año. Esta catedral es uno de los monumentos arquitectonicos mas bellos de Barcelona. Prefiero este lugar a la Sagrada Familia, afortunadamente no es tan famosa y no hay tanto turista como en la otra. Y ojala siga siendo un monumento discreto, humilde y magnifico.

Estas fotografias fueron tomadas con una tecnica fotografica llamada HDR (High Dynamic Range) en castellano Alta Rango Dinamico.

This is the most beautiful gothic chu...

This is the most beautiful Gothic church of the city. With its understated entrance, flanked by two octagonal towers is majestic. Built in a record time of 59 years, which may seem huge today, it is a masterpiece of Catalan art, including her breast. Indeed, it is mainly within that deserves attention. Smooth, bright, blue, a feeling of space and serenity we invaded. It is a haven of peace in the midst of one of the most bustling areas of the world that is El Born, the former center of local commerce. To see and review.

C'est la plus belle église gothique de la ville. Avec son entrée sobre, flanquée de deux tours octogonales elle est majestueuse. Construite en un temps record de 59 ans, qui peut paraître énorme aujourd'hui, elle est un chef d'œuvre de l'art catalan, notamment en son sein. En effet, c'est l'intérieur surtout qui mérite toute l'attention. Harmonieux, lumineux, bleuté, une sensation d'espace et de sérénité nous envahie. C'est un véritable havre de paix au milieu de l'un des quartiers les plus grouillant de monde qu'est El Born, l'ancien centre du commerce local. A voir et revoir.

Church of santa maria del mar

The church of Santa Maria del Mar is located in the center of Barcelona, ​​not far from the Picasso Museum. Built in the 14th century Catalan Gothic style, the building is remarkable from the outside, including two massive towers, a huge rose window and a large carved portal. She is just as much inside: there are three naves and large pillars recalling the two towers of the facade. In addition, the church stands in the middle of the streets of the old city and the Gothic Quarter, which makes it even more impressive and photogenic when we place ourselves in one of these streets.

Eglise santa maria del mar

L'église Santa-Maria del Mar est située au centre-ville de Barcelone, pas très loin du musée Picasso. Bâtie au 14e siècle en style gothique catalan, l'édifice est remarquable de l'extérieur, comprenant deux clochers massifs, une immense rosace et un grand portail sculpté. Elle l'est tout autant de l'intérieur: on y trouve 3 nefs et de larges piliers rappelant les deux tours de la façade.
De plus, l'église se dresse au beau milieu des ruelles de la vieille ville et du quartier gothique, ce qui la rend encore plus impressionnante et très photogénique quand on se place dans une de ces rues.

Special experience

Climb the terraces of the Cathedral del Mar in Barcelona is certainly a special experience. It looks good as the built based on criteria of practicality and not of pomp and Gothic cathedrals francs. In addition are the signs of earthquakes, wars and fires along is its 7 centuries of dense history!

Just an architectural spectacle !!!!

He wrote a book about this cathedral, to see the book of considerable size, I enter a great curiosity about the site and I move to Barcelona to see if it was a temple as majestic as described in that book ... I think the book ..... need some more product for favorable adjectives that would give such construction.

Simplemente un espectáculo arquitectónico!!!!

Se escribió un libro sobre dicha catedral, al ver el libro de un tamaño considerable, me entro una gran curiosidad por conocer el sitio y me desplace hasta Barcelona para ver si realmente era un templo tan majestuoso como se describía en el citado libro........creo que el libro necesitaría alguna página mas para los adjetivos favorables que le daría a dicha construcción.

I entered the church to do college work, and did not have much interest because he thought he could not compare to the Cathedral of Barcelona, ​​until I looked up and I was very shocked forms of arches, columns, lighting .. . Everything.

Entré en la iglesia para hacer un trabajo de la universidad, y no tenía mucho interés porque pensaba que no podría compararse a la Catedral de Barcelona, hasta que miré hacia arriba y me impactó mucho las formas de los arcos, columnas, la iluminación... Todo.
