What to See at Santa Maria del Pi

Santa Maria del Pi is on the Placa Sant Josep Oriol, a pretty square that is filled with an artists' market on the weekend and the outdoor tables of the Bar del Pi the rest of the time.

The church has a Romanesque door but is otherwise Catalan Gothic in style. It has a single wide nave with chapels beneath the buttresses and a giant rose window at the entrance. The interior is plain but features some beautiful stained glass windows.
