Santa Maria del Mar, a best-seller church
Can you imagine the medieval Barcelona? Its people, its streets, its traditions…
Of course you can!
Ildefonso Falcones published “The cathedral of the sea” in 2006, a novel inspired in the 14th century of the city, and it fastly became a worldwide best-seller. It explains the story of Arnau, born a serf’s son who obtains his freedom and eventually achieves a higher status.
And as the story develops, the construction of Santa Maria del Mar continues. A very beautiful, impressive church which was built thanks to its neighbours that you can visit nowadays.
Next to it, there is El fossar de les moreres, a very special place for all the catalans.
So… Are you prepared to live Barcelona’s medieval history?
