This Placa is delightful. Has a building (Shoemakers Guild) placed there from somewhere else; a recently added fountain and Shoe Museum. Also has many 'bullet/bomb' markings said to have been from the Spanish Civil War on the church (now a school)

We stopped here on a guided tour of the Gothic quarter, the church was bombed as part of the civil war and has been left as a reminder of those times. There is a cafe where we returned the next day to have a drink...More

Well worth a visit while in barrio gotic. This is such a beautiful little square. Can be kind of hard to find. Well worth the visit. The fountain in the center makes for some great pictures.

This almost invisible square is full of history, it is hidden in a corner of the Gothic quarter, you'll see the Baroque church of Sant Felip Neri, walk around look at the walls and read the plaques that speak of the history of the city...

Even though hard to find, We found the plaza with the Church of Felip Neri with it's sad history, There is also a restaurant and sometimes there are musicians with guitars at the fountains within it.

Plaza with church whose walls still show bomb damage from the civil war. The church was being used as an orphanage at the time and 42 were killed by the bomb. There is a wall plaque and one in the ground.

Nice to stroll through and maybe have a bite to eat at the Neri Restaurant. Sometimes musicians strum guitars there and sometime police patrol the area as people tend to loiter there.

Placa Sant Felip Neri is possibly the best spot in town: a quiet, hidden gem where I suggest you to go and enjoy some peace!

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

I never saw the church open. I know some days they celebrate concerts inside the church, but the Square is beautiful.
