St. Mary of the Sea Cathedral
Significant parts of the original cathedral still remain intact, including much of the imposing frontage, accompanied by a number of restorations and additions added throughout the 20th century. The cathedral interiors are far less imposing, with stained glass clerestory windows allowing light to stream into the aisles and a ribbed vault supported by dramatic slender columns. Highlights include the 15th-century west window, a beautiful rosette of stained glass; the exquisite sculptures adorning the tympanum and portal; and the Capella del Santo Cristo, with its stained-glass allegory of Barcelona’s 1992 Olympic Games.
The cathedral is open to visitors daily, but to really experience the atmospheric surroundings, time your visit for the traditional choral mass held each Sunday.
