Barcelona, a photo a day

Santa Maria del Mar


The beautiful church of Saint Mary of the Sea, in the Ribera area of Barcelona. It is Catalan Gothic, and the church was built between 1329 and 1383. A very tall and very elegant church, a beauty.

This, by the way, is for My World Tuesday. Much more my world than yesterday’s beautiful but bellicose airplanes. Please click here to see more photos.

  11. I always wondered how to transfer the airy and religious feel of the church heights. Now I see the answer.
