C. de la Mercé, 4
Location in Google Maps
This church is located in carrer de la Mercč and on the outside the polychrome stands out of the central dome.
It was founded by the beatified Manuel Domingo i Sol from Tortosa. The project was designed in 1899 by the architect Joan Abril i Guanyabens. It is the first Reparació temple built in Spain and the second in the world. The skylight is positioned over the centre of the nave, with its octagonal base, crowned by a small beaten iron belfry with a cross on the top.
The apse vault was painted in fresco by the artist from Tortosa Josep Benet Espuny and represents the traditional Pantocrat. Two oil paintings by Antoni Cerveto Bestraten are preserved in the arch of the presbytery and the lower part of the choir stall.
The mausoleum of the Beatified Manuel Domingo i Sol is located next to the wall beside the Epistle on the right wall of the temple. It is made from Carrara marble.
The crypt is in neo-roman style, with sixteen stone columns support the nave of the temple and on can also sense a touch of Gaudí’s influence there.
On the outside, the polychrome of the central dome draws everyone’s attention, a true stylistic model.
