An authentic old square

Don't miss the Neri Hotel's. One of finest in Barcelona. And check the entrance's lamp. It's magical.

Off the beaten track. 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 centre of "chaos". It has a little fountain where locals sit. You can rest a while... More

this is a very peculiar gem hide in the old town of Barcelona. You should try to find it and discover why the walls are full of hollows ;)

One of the most beautiful place in Barcelona. You can catch the spirit and the soul of Barcelona. You can have a drink at the very nice Terrasse of the Neri RELAIS&CHATEAUX.

If you are a fan of the film Perfume, or the attached history, then you should visit. There is a school in one of the buildings, so try to come on a school holiday, or while clases are still on, otherwise you might meet the children who entertain themselves by kicking balls at tourists *sigh*..

The Placa Sant Felip Neri is a lovely little square in the Barri Gotic. Very historical (apparently it was built over a cemetery), and with evidence of war seen in the bullet holes in the walls, there is now a church of the same name in this square. Recommended.

I visit this square during a tour and realized it was a special little square before I was told why. You don't need to know what bullet or cannon holes are to know that this square saw a lot of horrible things during the war. Regardless, it is beautiful and worth the visit.

This square is magic. It shows the tragic history of the Spanish Civil War with the bullet holes. You can also get in the Church, where if lucky you could spot a free Classical music concert as it happened to me.

A tiny square with a charming little fountain in the middle and overlooked by the baroque church of Sant Felip Neri. You can still see the wounds etched into the facade of the church. A plaque reminds us of the fact that a bombing raid by fascist planes ended the lives of 42 people, many of them children who had... More
