Santa Maria del Mar is an imposing Church in the Ribera district of Barcelona, Spain, built between 1329 and 1383, at the height of Catalonia's maritime and mercantile pre-eminence. It is an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic Architecture, with a purity and unity of style that is very unusual in large Mediaeval buildings.
