Plaça de Sant Felip Neri, Barcelona

4.6
Tucked into a corner of the Gothic Quarter, Plaça de Sant Felip Neri offers a more quiet, contemplative experience than a typical Spanish plaza. A bomb etched still-visible wounds into the church facade in January 1938, during the Spanish Civil War. The bomb claimed 42 lives, mostly children. Architect Adolf Florensa took charge of the reconstruction of the site. Some scenes of the Woody Allen film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” were shot here.
