During the Spanish civil war, the square was the center of conflict and bombings! The shrapnel has destroyed part of the church's facade, and you can see this now, since they have left it as a reminder of the wounds and suffering Barcelona went through.

This is a square surrounded by the small streets of old Barcelona. Nothing much special but it was a resting spot after going through long walks

Beautiful tall trees, school children playing in the plaza and the walls left untouched to remind of the tragedy of war when they dropped two bombs, one to frighten the people into the street and the second to kill them. Sad but beautiful plaza and...More
