Discover a unique perspective on Catalan Gothic architecture from the roof of the basilica
Tours entitled Les terrasses de Santa Maria del Mar i els nous descobriments del Gòtic català (The terraces of Santa María del Mar and the new discoveries in Catalan Gothic) will take place on Saturday the 16th of November and Saturday the 7th of December, at 5 pm and 4.30 pm respectively.
The itinerary, which starts at the main gates of the Santa Maria del Mar cathedral and lasts for approximately an hour and a half, takes in the interior of the basilica, continuing to the rooftop, from where participants can enjoy new historical and artistic perspectives on medieval society in Barcelona. Details of the recent investigations into Catalan Gothic style religious and civil architecture from both conceptual and construction perspectives will be revealed during the course of the tour.
The view from the roof of the Santa María del Mar basilica allows a better appreciation of Catalan Gothic architecture in the medieval period and direct contact with the internal structure as well as the roof and pillars of the basilica offer the visitor a closer perception of the marks left by the passage of time, for example, the earthquake in the 14th century which severely damaged the façade, the rose window and the vaults.
