Just off the chaos of the Plaza Catalunya is this little church. The cost is 2 euros, but the Cloister alone is worth the peaceful interlude.

First see and experience it. Come back for a service or one of the periodic concerts that they have. It is not too far from the Picasso Museum and it's in the Gothic quarter for more waling and sight seeing.

For only two euro you can enter this quiet and religious church. There are several great alters and secluded reflection areas. This is a nice find and a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

You can find this ancient church off St. Anna street, and only off that street. Very small by comparison to the massive cathedrals, but it also has a cloister area. Good site for a quick 30 minute visit.

If you are interested in Barcelona history, certainly Santa Anna is worth a stop.

Prior to my arrival to Barcelona, I found a website in Germany called classictic.com. I was able to research the various musical groups and soloists performing at different venues, including smaller venues such as the churches in Barcelona. The Musica Reservata de Barcelona was performing one night at Santa Anna. It was easy to arrange tickets for three adults, but... More

Let the crowds go to the Sagrada family, their flip flops will drop off, yet 50 meters from the Rambles and Placa Catalunya there is this jewel of a church and Cloister belonging to the Equestrian order of the knights of the Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
