“Atmospheric”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This very atmoshepic square happens to be a stop on most walking tours. Even if you don't take a walking tour, it is well worth a short visit on your own. Transport yourself back in time.

“Significant location”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is a stop on the free Sandeman's walking tour. It's where Gaudi came to pray every day and where he was headed when he was struck and killed by a tram. It is also a location of explosions by Franco (the pock marks are in the wall of the church and were never airbrushed as Franco did with many of the locations he damaged in his fight to conquest Spain). Also it's a peaceful plaza and Woody Allen filmed a scene from Vicky Christina Barcelona here; Scarlett Johanssen and Javier Bardem shot a scene in the expensive restaurant in the hotel on the corner diagonal from the church.

“A poignant place”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

A local restaurant owner recommended that we visit Placa Sant Felip Neri due to its historical significance.

It was a very poignant place, but well worth a short visit.

“You Can Visit the Church for Mass if You Are Up Early”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

If you actually are sightseeing at 8:00 am, you can attend the daily mass held in the church. It is a small, unspectacular church. Basically, the type of place where you would have expected Gaudi to go to mass. They lock the church right after mass, so it is generally not open. As others have noted, this is a nice little area to walk through in a tour of Barri Gotic.
