  • The Basilica is pretty small, but it was one of the places that I love more in Barcelona. We went to a show of flamenco guitar, right at the end and intimate wine was served. That wonderful culture and simple at the same time.

  • Santa Maria del Pi (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsantə məˈɾi.ə ðəɫ ˈpi], meaning "St. Mary of the Pine") is a 14th-century Gothic church in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It is situated on the Plaça del Pi, in the Barri Gòtic district of the city. There are unsubsantiated claims that there was an early Christian church on the site in 413. However it is known that in 987 there existed a church outside the city walls and to the west of Barcelona. This was a small Romanesque church dedicated to the Blessed Lady of the Pine Tree (one of the titles of the Virgin Mary). The church was built between 1319 and 1391. The style of the church was Catalan Gothic, with a single nave almost devoid of ornamentation. However, in 1936 the church was gutted by a fire and was later restored
  • A very simple and beautiful monastery, when the sunlight hits the stain glass on the outside on the inside of the monastery it glows the color of the glass. Amazing sight to see.
  • The interpretation of gothic architecture here in Barcelona is called Catalan Gothic and this church is a great example of that style. Look up towards the rose window, it’s one of the world’s largest. One thing I quickly discover about Barcelona is that there’s another world of folklore and legends surrounding the old city. The stories dates back to the Romans, who legend tells planted a pine tree here to mark their conquest. Other tales talk about giants, figures that can be seen inside the church. There’s another story about how a figure of the Virgin Mary is found inside the trunk of a pine tree, hence the name Santa Maria del Pi, the Virgin Mary inside the Pine. To this day, there’s still a pine tree right outside the church in the square.
  • Beautiful Cathedral with a reasonable entrance fee. The stained glass windows are lovely and I really liked the room to the side that give you a good understanding of the history of the building. The garden was also nice with a couple of friendly cats who came to say hello when I came in.
  • A 14th century gothic church right at the city center. We found this as we were exploring the alleyways of Barcelona.
