The Church of Bethlehem is located in the El Ravel quarter on the Ramblas and is a rare example of the Baroque style. It's the site where the Jesuits were permitted to build their first church in 1555 that burned down in 1671 and rebuilt from 1680-1732 before the Jesuits were expelled in 1767. In 1936 the church was partially... More

Very easy to make a prayer stop here off of La Rambla. A very well maintained Catholic Church with statues of the Birth of Jesus. Glad we stopped!!!

A Baroque style Church that is dedicated to the Nativity and Holy Family. Located on Las Ramblas, near Starbucks, Hotel 1898, and Le Meridien, houses beautiful carvings of Creche Scenes and is a favorite of Pilgrims at Christmastime when it is packed. Nice to stop in anytime just to see the side chapels. Mass daily, free.

We wandered in here on a mooch up La Rambla and we were glad we did. It is a beautiful example of a baroque church. What I really liked is that it focuses on the joy of the birth of the saviour rather than death and sin.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
