Church of Santa Maria

Construction
14th century.

Architectural features
The interior is of big dimensions, a long nave with fan vaulting and with scenes of the Old Testament sculptured. At the sides there are the chapels which have a square base with fan vaulting, there are beautiful Gothic windows, where the mysteries of the Rosary are represented. In the 18th century a chapel was extended and it was turned into the Holiest Chapel. We point out the big Gothic image of the Virgin (Mare de Déu del Cor), carved in polychromatic wood, the altarpiece of Sant Bernat and Sant Bernabé and the Baroque organ, one of the most important in Catalonia.

History
It is situated in the highest part of Montblanc, at the same place where the ancient Romanesque church was. Because of the increase in population it was decided to build a new one. The work was made in sections and due to the black death, which provoked a great economical and demographic crisis, it had to be left unfinished. The big Gothic façade was destroyed during the Reapers' War. The one we can see now is in a Baroque style (17th century).
