For many when they conjure up an image of the beautiful European city of Barcelona, it’s the spectacular churches that are imprinted on our minds. Why not explore the opportunity of having your breathtaking Wedding Ceremony in one?
Barcelona has close to 200 churches dotted around this historic city providing the perfect place to have your romantic nuptials. The city has a wide array of churches and there is truly one suited to every couple´s requirements. This ranges from the grand churches located in the beautiful Gothic quarter steeped in European history to churches which are truly hidden gems. Here are some of our favorites:
The church of Sant Sever is located in a quiet street in the heart of Barcelona´s Gothic quarter and was built between 1698 and 1705. Sant Sever is truly a hidden gem; even many of the locals don´t know its exact location and pass by by it unknowingly. The church has Barroque touches throughout the interior, which will undoubtedly provide you and your guests with a magical and truly unforgettable ceremony.
For fans of Romanesque architecture, Sant Pau del Camp should be a top choice for your Catholic Ceremony as it is one of the best examples of this style to be found in the city. The church claims to be the oldest one in Barcelona dating back to the 4th Century and it is blessed with a beautiful small cloister that can provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.
If you are looking for a grand church for your wedding ceremony then the 14th century Gothic church Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi could provide the perfect romantic setting. Situated in a bustling square in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona, just off the famous La Rambla, the church boasts vaulted ceilings and beautiful stain glass windows, which allow the sunlight to stream through and bathe your ceremony in romantic sunlight.
Santa Ana Church is located in a tranquil courtyard close to Plaza Cataluña and La Rambla. The origins of the church date back to the 12th century and it is a beautiful example of Gothic and Romanesque architecture at its finest. The church provides two magical spaces for ceremonies to take place: one for smaller intimate wedding and one for larger parties. However, the heart of the church is the stunning cloister, which is the perfect place to have your magical and beautiful wedding photos taken.
The city is blessed with stunning churches and undoubtedly the hardest decision for you will be choosing just one amazing church for your Barcelona wedding ceremony.
