Make sure you look up! Really look at the outside of the buildings. Everything has a meaning. Architecture beautiful. Very quiet and peaceful here. We had a private tour guide. Highly recommended so you can understand the history here.

50 meters of the crowd of tourists visiting the Cathedral and Barri Gotic of Barcelona, you have this quiet and charming corner with a church, a boutique hotel and a fountain.

Have a look at the walls and see where the Spanish Civil War played out in this small square - try the gelato too!

Really peaceful square in the gothic quarter. A little bit difficult to reach without a gps, but amazing. It seems you are not in a big city.

In this quiet and peaceful small square it is difficult to imagine the chaos that occurred here during the Spanish Civil War. The scares on the façade of the Church of St. Philip Neri remind us of the innocents that perished here in 1938. Across...More

This is a small square in the Gothic Quarter. The shrapnel-scarred wall of the church in the square is from two bombs dropped during the Spanish Civil War by the forces of Franco.

This small square is so peaceful and quiet. If you want to spend some time with yourself come here and observe the light, the trees, the water from the fountain, and the walls of the church which talk about more darker times.

I never saw the church open. I know some days they celebrate concerts inside the church, but the Square is beautiful.
