I'm in two minds about contributing to more people going to visit Placa Sant Felip Neri. It can be such a peaceful and lovely square with a small running fountain in front of the church and primary school. My family and I Incidentally stumbled upon it when walking through the Gothic quarter and further behind the cathedral. At the time... More

The Church where Gaudì was used to pray, in a little and tipical medioeval square. Suggested, do not miss if you're nearby

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.

A sweet placa that doesn't get the tourist attention that it deserves. take time to reflect and study the plaque on the wall

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
