Made all the better in that I found this wonderful and ancient place by accident, and upon entering, felt certain that I had been here before. The old stones vibrate with the prayers of ages past, and I feel so honored to have found the peaceful cloisters and a singing bird, who flew down and accompanied my slow transit all... More

Before leaving home for Barcelona, I did a search of shows and concerts in the city during the days we'll be in town. I came across a show called Art de Guitarra. It described a Spanish guitar duet performed in a unique and intimate environment - the relatively small Church of Santa Ana, a church just east of Plaza Catalunya.... More

I came upon this hidden gem of a church quite by accident. The church is located just off Las Ramblas and Santa Anna Street. The Church is austere but beautiful in its own way. This is more of a local church and an excellent place to visit especially for some quite time and prayers. The church houses three excellent artworks... More

We took a stop at Santa Anna Church and it was beautiful and so peaceful. The church is worth a look around but outside the small courtyard is really calm and relaxing. With the sun shining on it, it looked great. Really good visit if you just want 10 minutes away from the tourists.

I visited here during the week in my visit to Barcelona - can be a little tricky to find however Google maps will be a good guide if you have it. There is an entry fee (about 2 eur) which is a little silly considering the massive cathedral is free - but all the same this church is a good... More

If you've been on Las Ramblas, and who hasn't now and again, you may have gone off to the left or the right to explore the streets of El Raval or El Barri Gòtic. Please tell me you have gone off to the left or the right to explore the streets of El Raval or El Barri Gòtic. Just one... More

Went here several times for wonderful guitar concerts. This intimate candlelight concert in the chapel is recommended. You can buy tickets online or at the door. Concerts are for roughly 80 persons, so really intimate.

If you have visited most of the familiar tourist sites and are looking for something special to do on a week-end evening, you can't go wrong listening to a great Spanish guitar concert in the setting of Iglesia de Santa Anna. The church and adjoining cloister date back to the 11th and 15th century so arrive early to look around... More

I can't comment too much on the church, because we went there at night for a concert, which was held in a small chapel with only 25 seats. It was a beautiful setting for a divine guitar concert. We saw Nadim Majure, who played classical and flamenco guitar. He was brilliant! The intimate setting was just perfect for the music... More

Santa Ana Church is located in a quiet small square in the downtown area near the shopping streets , when visiting make sure that you go to the very unique garden.
