The Nave of the Santa Maria Del Mar

I seemed to have been a little obsessed with naves during my trip to Barcelona. Again, I hope this isn't getting too repetitive. I'm entirely blaming it on the abundance of beautiful churches and cathedrals in Barcelona.

Santa Maria del Mar is an imposing church in Barcelona, Catalonia. Located in the district of La Ribera, it was built between 1329 and 1383, at the height of Catalonia's maritime and mercantile preeminence. It is an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic, with a purity and unity of style that are very unusual in large mediaeval buildings.
