Plaza San Felipe de Neri is a small and nice square with lots of history from the Spanish civil war. The walls of the church are scarred by bullet holes. The place is very quiet and peaceful despite its history.

A quaint and secluded little square in the old city, a short walk from the Cathedral. The walls of the church, scarred by bullet holes, bear witness to the destruction of the Spanish Civil war. The simple fountain in the middle, under the shade of huge old trees, provides welcome respite from the heat and humidity. A wonderful place to... More

This small square is in the Gothic quarter. Full of trees, very quiet. On one of the walls you can still see the traces of the guns during the Spanish Civil war.

As you walk literally miles in the tight Gothic Quarter you rarely see greenery until you turn into this lush square with multiple mature shade trees with full foliage. The square is so hidden, quiet and secluded it is easy to enjoy the moment and miss the history. The church and the square were bombed during the Spanish Civil War.... More

This is a nice place to visit during your walking tour of the Gothic Quarter. It's a small space, relatively shady so a way to get out of the sun if you are overheating. A few Spanish kids were sitting in a walkway singing songs and a small crowd of tourists were there too. In the end most people come... More

This is a super small square, but with a lot of history. U can see the bullet holes from the civil war in the walls of the church (which is also a school). But besides this, is a really nice place to visit, surrounded by tiny streets and antique buildings made of stone. One of them was the famous Neri... More
