Lovely church with peaceful cloister

A small place of quiet in the center of Barcelona. The cloister is particularly lovely and peaceful. Anyone wandering around old Barcelona should stop by.

Santa Anna Church is very close to Placa Catalunya and is surrounded by the old town attractions. To be able to economize our time in Barcelona, we went to an evening classical guitar concert in one of the chapels. Drinks were served in the cloister after the event, and if you arrive early, you can wander around the church and... More

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.
