Santa Maria del Mar is one of Barcelona's most emblematic buildings. This parochial church of cathedral dimensions exemplifies, perhaps more than any other, the constructive rationality and economy of means that characterize Catalan Gothic architecture.
This comprehensive guide analyses artefacts ranging from historical construction and financing contracts to interior furnishings to the structural system of the building itself, helping the reader to understand and appreciate the abstract, rational beauty of a key work of the Catalan Gothic.
Published by the Uriach Foundation, it is available in our online shop in Catalan, Spanish, and English (early 2019).
