Welcome to the Basilica of “la Mercè”.

The Virgin of "la Mercè" -Our Lady of Mercy- has been the Patron Saint of the city of Barcelona since 1687. She is also de Patron Saint of the Metropolitan Archdiocese and the Ecclesiastical Province. Her image, in gothic style, is venerated in the Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy

I am the pastor of this magnificent church so dear to all of us; and on behalf of the Christian community that lives here, let me say to you "be welcome". Here, in its depths, are the roots of the history of Barcelona city, highlighting the testimony of St. Peter Nolasco and many other witnesses of the faith, who evangelized nearby lands, risking their lives for freedom. I invite you to kiss our beloved image. I hope you bring back to your country and to your religious communities, our affection and our best wishes of communion in faith and love. The Mercedarian slogan says: "My life for your freedom." I pray in order and Barcelona life’s, be join at Merced Virgin’s feet.

Thank you very much
