Went here several times for wonderful guitar concerts. This intimate candlelight concert in the chapel is recommended. You can buy tickets online or at the door. Concerts are for roughly 80 persons, so really intimate.

If you have visited most of the familiar tourist sites and are looking for something special to do on a week-end evening, you can't go wrong listening to a great Spanish guitar concert in the setting of Iglesia de Santa Anna. The church and adjoining cloister date back to the 11th and 15th century so arrive early to look around... More

I can't comment too much on the church, because we went there at night for a concert, which was held in a small chapel with only 25 seats. It was a beautiful setting for a divine guitar concert. We saw Nadim Majure, who played classical and flamenco guitar. He was brilliant! The intimate setting was just perfect for the music... More

Santa Ana Church is located in a quiet small square in the downtown area near the shopping streets , when visiting make sure that you go to the very unique garden.

We went purposefully to see this delightful church and cloisters because it was listed in an off the beaten track article. It was well worth it. The church is small and costs two euros to visit which is much less expensive than almost anything in Barcelona. It is a tranquil oasis in the midst of the chaos of the outside... More

Out of several churches in Spain we found, this is one of the nicer churches in Barcelona. The alter was littered with golden artifacts. A small turnout made it a leisurely look at several of the quite scenes.

Just off the chaos of the Plaza Catalunya is this little church. Entrance fee of two euros. The cloister alone is worth the visit.

This was the highlight of our weekend break - the recital in the church of St Anna was wonderful. Two extremely accomplished guitarists (lovely to look at as well as to listen to!) playing traditional pieces and a glass of wine after - all for E20 !

We did not tour the church, but attended the Art de Guitarra Concert. It was a lovely evening in which the soloist masterfully performed classical and Spanish pieces. It was a nice change and introduction to Spanish composers. Highly recommend for music lovers.

The music in art de guitara is good. However wep urchased through the internet a ticket for music and dinner. ... They cheated us: after one hour of concert they send you to a near by restaurant . Th einternet deal cost 86?.while the concert is 20? and the restaurant menu 17?. So we paid 200%. Real fall
