Santa María del Pi
This basilica owes its name (pi means pine) to the pine forest that once stood here and spanned from the walls of the Roman city to the Ramblas. In 1320s, work began on the basilica building, which is in typical Barcelona Gothic style, although the main entrance is Romanesque. Inside is a chapel, in front of the chapter house containing the tomb of Josep Oriol (a saint from Barcelona).
