The chapel of Marcús (Capella d’en Marcús in Catalan) owes its foundation and its name to the rich banker Bernat Marcùs, although it was dedicated from its beginning (1150) to the Virgin of the Guide (Mare de Déu de la Guia ) due to its location at a crossroads of roads outside the walls of Barcelona. Its function was cemetery but later it became part of a hospital for travelers. It has a unique nave, a barrel vault and a belfry of later time.
