I really loved this little placa. It's almost hidden and very quiet with a nice light and freshness. I had read of the bombing that had occured there, the deaths and the still visible traces of it. I never expected it to be so visible. It was moving to imagine what had happenned and see how life has taken back... More

We Walked thru the streets of Bario Gothico and found our way to this most quaint Placa. We sat down on the Patio of Hotel Neri and had a glass of Verdejo listening to the fountain in the center and a lady playing the violin. It was vey romantic and memorable!

This hidden square just in the middle of the barri Gotic is one of the most romantic spots in town. We visited it at night, when no one was around and someone somewhere was playing accordion. The place is also filled with history: the holes on the bottom of the facade were caused by a bomb thrown during the civil... More

This off the beaten square is often quiet. Aside from appreciating the historic value of the plaque and the old architecture, it's a wonderful place to just have some quiet time and absorb the beauty of this great city.

Plaza de San Felipe Neri is a quiet square found hidden amongst the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, very close to the Cathedral. It was constructed on the medieval cemetery of Montjuïc del Bisbe and was named in honor of an Italian Jesuit preacher who was beatified in 1615. Possibly the most beautiful square in Barcelona, yet also the... More

This little plaza, located in the heart of the Gothic Qtr, is a great spot to get away from the heat and hustle of the city. As a resident of this busy and noisy city, I love this place for it's cool and quiet nature.

The damage to the building tells of the history of this quite little square and the close, tall walls echo the sounds from within. Perfect spot to escape for a few moments or hours with a good book. On most guided tours list of stops it quickly fills up with a tour group,(perfect time to eves drop on the guides... More

Beautiful with a dark history. The most romantic Placa in BCN. Beautiful by day and by night... difficult to find if you don't know where it is.. but worth it. Great soap shop next door as well :)
