Print

Plaša Sant Felip NeriThe Plaša Sant Felip Neri, one of the most romantic squares in Barelona, hides a dark history in that it was built over the city's old cemetery. Barcelona's most famous architect, Antonio Gaudi, was on his way to visit the church there when he was run over and killed in 1928. There's a baroque church (Sant Felip Neri), a XVI century palace and a fountain in the middle. To arrive, take the narrow street next to the cathedral cloister. The palace was moved from its original location in the street Via Laietana during the 20's.

If you look the front of the church, you can see some holes made by a civil war bomb. If you go out the square through the other street, you'll arrive to the street Baixada de Santa EulÓlia, where is said that the Barcelona's protector was tormented.

The square is named after a saint (Jesuit preacher, Florence 1515 - Rome 1595) to whom its dominating church is dedicated.

There is a fountain right In the middle of the square - where the Montju´c del Bisbe cemetery used to be - which adds to the charm and poetry of this square the charm and makes all the more worth visiting.
