Fishing in the city of Barcelona dates back to the origins of the City, however, the fishermen and the Barceloneta neighborhood, or Barriada de la Playa as they used to call it at that time, have formed an endearing unit, since its foundation.
The commercial activity that took place in Barcelona during the fourteenth century manifested itself in the construction of large temples. The temple of Santa María de Mar, is an example, on its central altar, today, its origins can be seen; specifically there is a representative effigy of a medieval boat in recognition of the Cofradía de Pescadores y Marineros de Barcelona.
There are other signs of recognition in representations of brothers, which can be seen in the main portal, in the capitals of the columns of the interior naves and in the arches of the façade. The fishermen brotherhoods also had keys and could hold meetings inside. When the construction of the temple was finished in 1328, the workforce provided by both sailors and fishermen was almost as important as that of the "basaixadors" (carriers of weights or stones)
