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.

The anniversary of the consecration of the church of Sant Salvador de Polinyà and the inauguration of its remarkable wall paintings now 900 years ago are a good occasion to “celebrate” and love the local cultural heritage, which brings us closer and helps us understand the history of the diocese of Barcelona and our culture.
Last April 7th, a very special exhibition for the institution was inaugurated at the Museu Diocesà de Barcelona: “Fides ex auditu” Half a century of Dr. Josep M. Martí i Bonet with Church’s heritage, a recognition of the career of Dr. Josep M. Martí Bonet in the last 50 years at the front of the cultural heritage management of the Archdiocese of Barcelona, contributing to make the expression of St. Paul a reality in our day and among us: “Fides ex auditu”, “faith cometh by hearing”.
Based on characters who appear represented in the cultural heritage of the Church, the offer of guided activities that Catalonia Sacra Network offers is explained.
