Santa Maria de Mataró

The bells of the Basilica of Santa Maria de Mataró will be restored.

The restoration works of the bells of the bell tower of the Basilica of Santa Maria de Mataró have begun, which include the casting of a new bell and the renewal of all the supporting and counterweight elements of the other ones. This will allow the restoration of the historical repertoire and ensure the continuity of manual bell ringing, declared as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The Government of Catalonia has already granted a subsidy of €44,000, and the City Hall of Mataró will contribute an additional €44,000 to make the project possible.

Celebration of 900 years of Polinyà paintings
