Plaça Sant Felip Neri

Plaça Sant Felip Neri Review

A tiny square just behind Plaça de Garriga Bachs off the side of the cloister of the Catedral de la Seu, this space was once the cemetery for Barcelona's executed heroes and villains, before all church graveyards were moved to the south side of Montjuïc where the municipal cemetery now resides. A favorite spot for early-music concerts, the square is centered on a fountain, whose trickling—a constant E-flat—fills the square with its own water music. A bomb explosion during the Spanish civil war caused the pockmarks on the walls of the San Felip Neri church.
