Sadly, it was burnt again in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War and lot of its invaluable treasures and works of art were destroyed... More

Esglesia de Betlem is a Baroque church situated on La Rambla. Lovely architecture. We didn't go in as it was closed.

Excellent service and flavors. Very reasonable prices and helpful, friendly staff. We went two nights in a row due to the excellent food and wine. If you sit outside it is a noisy corner but we loved the people watching. Tiny inside area which was packed. Once people give this place a try they come back. Spanish omelette of black... More

The church of La Rambla. La Rambla was the walled street between the Gothic Quarter and the Ravel which was a newer district within the walls. As a part of the new district, it is not unusual to see this church with a more baroque style of interior and design. However, there is a clear underlying Catalan influence with is... More

The Church of Bethlehem is located in the El Ravel quarter on the Ramblas and is a rare example of the Baroque style. It's the site where the Jesuits were permitted to build their first church in 1555 that burned down in 1671 and rebuilt from 1680-1732 before the Jesuits were expelled in 1767. In 1936 the church was partially... More

A Baroque style Church that is dedicated to the Nativity and Holy Family. Located on Las Ramblas, near Starbucks, Hotel 1898, and Le Meridien, houses beautiful carvings of Creche Scenes and is a favorite of Pilgrims at Christmastime when it is packed. Nice to stop in anytime just to see the side chapels. Mass daily, free.

We wandered in here on a mooch up La Rambla and we were glad we did. It is a beautiful example of a baroque church. What I really liked is that it focuses on the joy of the birth of the saviour rather than death and sin.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
