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 :)

Most tourists follow the busy crowd around the cathedral either towards Las Ramblas or down to the beach without discovering the small side streets of "El Gotico". Placa Sant Felip Neri is a beautiful and very calm plaza in the center of "chaos". It has a little fountain where locals sometimes sit and play the guitar while you can rest... More

This very atmoshepic square happens to be a stop on most walking tours. Even if you don't take a walking tour, it is well worth a short visit on your own. Transport yourself back in time.

This is a stop on the free Sandeman's walking tour. It's where Gaudi came to pray every day and where he was headed when he was struck and killed by a tram. It is also a location of explosions by Franco (the pock marks are in the wall of the church and were never airbrushed as Franco did with many... More

A local restaurant owner recommended that we visit Placa Sant Felip Neri due to its historical significance. It was a very poignant place, but well worth a short visit.
