La Catedral del Mar is located in the Plaza de Santa Maria 1.
It can be considered the best Catalan Gothic style found in Barcelona capital.
The history of Santa María Mar is closely linked to the Barcelona people. A small Christian community was born near the sea and outside the walls. The workers, fishermen and ordinary people started putting stones to build a temple; the first was laid on March 25, 1329; the last key of the vault was laid on 3 November 1383. The temple was consecrated by the bishop Pere Planella, on August 15, 1384.
The authors of the project were Berenguer de Montagut and Ramon Despuig. July 19, 1936, Santa Maria del Mar burned for eleven days at destroying the Baroque altar, images and files. They were only walls, columns and some windows. The restoration has been very costly.

This cathedral is another proof of Christianity neighbors. Martyrdoms of Santa Eulalia and Santa Cruz testify persecutions at the time of Maximiano.
In the year 877, the basilica hosted in one of its chapels, relics of Santa Eulalia to not be found by the Arab invaders of our peninsula.
This cathedral was damaged by Almazor, an Arab leader when it caught fire and destroyed the city. In 1046, Ramón Berenguer and his wife Almodis, with Bishop Guislabert, began construction of another Cathedral, the Romanesque Cathedral.
A posteriori, on the foundations of the original cathedral, and the Romanesque Cathedral, the Gothic Cathedral was built.
