Santa Maria del Mar

Visiting Santa Maria is helping with its preservation.

Visit it!

One of the most emblematic buildings of the Catalan Gothic.

Since 2005 the recovery and conservation of the Basilica is being carried out. The guided tours to the inside and on the rooftops of the church have been a source of income to carry out this task of recovery and conservation of the building.

Since 2015 interventions in Santa Maria del Mar’s heritage have been carried out thanks to the income obtained from the guided visits.

Some examples are: the recent restoration of the Born entrance and the restoration of the gothic statue of the Virgin located on the altar. Other tasks with the objective to improve the visits have been done too, for example, the set-up of boardwalks on the rooftops of the buildings.

There’s still a lot of work to be done! You can come to the visit, where not only will you learn and enjoy but also you will participate in the funding of the restoration and learn about the upcoming interventions.

Visit the rooftops of Santa Maria del Mar

This visit includes the entrance to the church, the access to the gallery and crypt and going up to the church’s rooftops. An enjoyable and accurate tour with the latest news! You can get to know the church from inside and admire its beauty. Once on the rooftop, you can enjoy its wonderful views and understand its historical evolution, its past and also its future.

Evenings in Santa Maria del Mar

On Friday and Saturday evenings, when the doors of the church close, a unique tour takes place. A visit for a small group allows the visitor to walk around it when the night is falling. Moreover, you will be able to understand the church from a very different point of view and admire the features of this architectural jewel of the Catalan gothic in their greatest splendour.
