Basilica Maria del Mare_6068

The Santa Maria del Mar Basilica, built in the 1300’s, takes my breath away.


It was begun almost seven hundred years ago.

Interior, Basilica del Mare_6094

I suppose I’m not unlike other mothers, who, on hearing the echoes of their children’s voices inside the walls, think, How did the clever builders of the ancient Ribera Guild know? How did they know, all those years ago, that their handiwork would be my private delight?

Votives, Basilica_6081
