  • It is spectacular, and surprisingly never would have thought find a precious Cathedral located in a town of this size.

  • Surprising find in a city of 11500 people an important Cathedral, the Basilica of Santa Maria in Gothic style 12TH to 15TH with remains of Romanesque style and a Gothic porch authentic work of art as well as the altarpiece in Alabaster from the inside. The rest of the city is full of noble buildings some of them refurbished since it became capital of the "Comtat d 'Empúries". If visits the Alt Empordà do not miss it.

  • 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
  • Neat cathedral, well with the small euro price. Beautiful stained glass throughout. The garden outside was quite pleasant to sit in as well.
  • 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.
  • 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.
