So named because of the colour of the marble used to build it. At the top of it is a sculpture by Josep Viladomat, named La bona acolida and a large mural by Miquel Viladrich (1930). The mural depicts people dressed in the traditional costumes of the different areas of Catalonia, typical products from the country and the symbols alluding to the poem Canigó by Jacint Verdaguer, to folk songs and to other motifs associated with Catalonia and its traditions.

Interior of lavishly decorated Asam church, Munich
Experimenting with a borrowed 7DII, I tried its HDR mode and stitched two wide-angle exposures using the EF-S 10-22 @10mm. It was about closing time so all the visitors are about to be ushered out and I had an empty church for a moment.
