Stumbled across this cool, lovely spot while meandering around the Gothic area. Every time we passed through there was a local troubadour playing music and people hanging out enjoying the moment.

It is a hidden small square. Very lovely and nice to pass. There are some street musicians occasionally and they are usually very good.

The place is located in the very center of Barcelona, in the Barrio Gotico, but it is very difficult to discover it accidentally because it is well hidden in the net of streat of this noisy barrio. Entering the square you will be enveloped and surprised by an astonishing silence, rather unbelievable because you are in the center of the... More

Beautifull tall trees and a central fountain invite to stay and enjoy the peace of this place, where if you are lucky music will complete the magical atmosphere.

A tiny church behind hotel Neri, next to a school. Nice to walk through. A little fountain and trees add something special. After 9am, school children play on this square.

This small square, well hidden in the buildings of old city is a hidden perfect spot. Very quiet, romantic and isolated. I could stay there for hours.

We stayed at Neri 2 which was up four flights of stairs but provided a surprisingly quiet location just away from the hussle and bussel. Just round the corner is a wonderful ice cream shop and a handmade soap shop.

The church still has the scars of bombs dropped during the Civil war when over 40 people-,many children- were killed in 1938. It is made even more emotional as you can hear and sometimes see the children from the school playing there. It is worth the short walk from the cathedral. If you take the Carrer de la Palla to...
