(businesspress24) - From the natural beauty of its countryside to the tempestuous political fabric of its past and present, Catalonia is always a fascinating visit.

Another historic attraction with a more recent turbulent past is the church of Santa Maria del Mar. Completed in 1776, it is the oldest chapel in the city, although much of what you see in the interior dates back to its more recent restoration, after its altars and decorations were destroyed in 1936. It is only open to visitors in the summer, although mass is held throughout the year in both English and Spanish.

Built on the remains of the oldest Roman settlement on the Iberian peninsula, it is now home to a wealth of ancient ruins, like the impressive amphitheatre by the seafront.
