Campaign to Restore the Bell Tower

Restoring the Bell Tower

Reforming and maintaining the Cathedral safely and beautifully

The new Cathedral of Barcelona, one of the greatest examples Catalan Gothic architecture, was built throughout the 14th and 15th centuries, as well as in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, on the site of the ancient paleo-Christian basilica and the subsequent Romanesque Cathedral. The new Cathedral was included in the 1979 Catalog of Architectural, Historical and Artistic Patrimony of Barcelona and has been declared a historical-artistic monument of national interest.

Numerous actions have been taken to conserve our Cathedral, including the renovation of the choir in 1997, restoration of the gargoyles and construction of the catwalk in December 1998, the new Cathedral bell - named Montserrat - also in 1998, the partial renovation of the electrical system and restoration of the facade, to name only a few of the latest improvements. The stability of the bell tower has recently been enhanced.

The above actions have been carried out using longer-lasting materials than those employed by our forebears. They gave us this Cathedral and now it is our responsibility to pass it on to subsequent generations, using all the most modern materials and techniques available to us today, but with the utmost respect for the work and materials left by the original builders. And so, we are asking for your help with our project to restore the bell tower.
