Santa Maria del Mar at dusk

An exclusive tour for small groups allows you to stroll nearly alone through one of the most special churches of the city. Spaces that usually are not accessible, like the gallery, the crypt and the neoclassical chapel are included in this tour where the silence, the monumental lighting and the immensity of the building contribute to make this tour a unique experience.

Getting to the rooftops of the church through the towers will allow you to get a new perspective of the building. From this point, the visitor will be able to see from a very close distance the rose window, the stained glass, the buttresses or the gargoyles. From the different levels of rooftops you can see the narrow streets of El Born, the main buildings of Ciutat Vella and an impressive panoramic view of 360º of the city of Barcelona at dusk.

This experience lasts approximately an hour and a half. It’s a close and detailed tour that allows you to stroll through all the corners of the church and at the same time learn in depth about the history, the anecdotes and the historical events of the most emblematic building of the Catalan gothic style.
