  • A Benedictine monastery that happens unnoticed but that impressed when you look closely. It is a corner of Barcelona that I like a lot.

  • Located in a neighborhood, in a charming cobbled square, the small parish opens the doors to a small, simple, austere temple that invites contemplation and in the contemplation of the several altars of the enclosure.

  • It is a church that does not have the popularity of other tourist but that worth a visit, already outside is a joy with the square and charming neighborhood of San Pedro. The Church has a long history, which is explained in this website. However it seems that a restoration was not to the liking of everyone, Cirici Periller in Barcelona has pam Pam that the façade was restored in 1911 "by the ignorant restaurateur Eduard Mercader" and "only retains the interest of the Gothic portal" the Church, at least the day that I visited, has much light by what it costs something to observe and view their details , especially the paintings. It has an apse of the 15th century and highlights the Corinthian capitals of the 10th century. It struck me an image of the Virgen de los Dolores was carried in procession on Friday before Easter, as it was tradition. Generally the images of this parish are quite large and beautiful. But best of all is the feeling get to be inside a building where mysticism, peace and history come together. Recommended.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
