The “Placa de Sant Felip Neri” in Barcelona

Barcelona   Where: Spain: Barcelona: “Placa de Sant Felip Neri: Paseo de Palau Episcopal, Barri Gotic

When: During daylight

Get there: It can be a little bit tricky… I sure spend some time doing circles in the Gothic area of Barcelona trying to find the entrance. There are only two ways in which makes it quite a secret spot. The best way is to have a good look at a map knowing which streets you have to go to…


Price: It is free to enter the square.

Do: Have some coffee or food a the outside area of the restaurant at the square. It is such a nice place to spend some time in.

My tip: Go there when you want a break. The gothic area of Barcelona is always so busy. This square on the other hand is surprisingly quiet. Antoni Gaudi knew that too and was visiting in the evenings whilst working on the “Sagrada Familia”. Sit at the water fountain and have a drink before reentering the busy part of the city… If you wondering about the holes in the wall. During the spanish civil war a bomb exploded inside the square leaving those marks.
