1300-TALETS BARCELONA är en stad i förändring. Pesten skördar offer, kriget närmar sig och inkvisitionens straff väntar alla kättare. Samtidigt pågår byggandet av folkets katedral: Santa Maria.

Den unge Arnau Estanyol växer upp i staden och vi följer honom från hans lekar kring katedralens bygge och på hans flykt från ett liv i fattigdom till samhällets högsta topp när han drygt femtio år senare som rik man är med och inviger katedralen.

Katedralen vid havet är ett fantastiskt porträtt av 1300-talets Barcelona och Katalonien. Historiska fakta i kombination med sociala intriger, konspirationer och kärleksöden gör detta till ett storslaget ävemtyr för alla.

Boken har vunnit ett flertal priser däribland det prestigefyllda italienska priset Giovanni Boccaccio för bästa utländska författare 2007 samt 2007 års Qué Leer-pris för bästa spanska bok.

    " This is a terrific story of the building of the church Santa Maria de la Mar in Barcelona in the 14th century, of guilds, stonemasons and their power, of relations of Jews and Christians, serfdom and nobility, the Inquisition, and politics of the time. "
