Sant Pau del Camp, Barcelona
(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Seek respite from Barcelona's bustle at the peaceful Sant Pau del Camp, an ancient church. Though the exact origins of this former monastery are unknown, it is thought to date back to the 10th century, making it one of the city's oldest buildings. Due to destruction by Muslim troops, much of what stands today was actually built in the 13th century, including the column-lined cloister. Look closely to examine its depictions of biblical stories, scenes from daily life, monsters, and vegetable motifs. The grounds serve as a serene spot for rest and contemplation. Put Sant Pau del Camp at the forefront of your travel plans using our Barcelona family vacation planner.

  • Del camp means that the Church was located outside the medieval walls: you realize the Barcelona urban developments. The Church is a jewel, although bombed; maintains original façade, with God's hand carved, and a superb cloister full of capitals. Not to be missed! The young Picasso started drawing here ...

  • This nice little church is located near the Rambla del Raval. It is a quiet oasis in an otherwise roaring metropolis. When we went to church, we were alone and could walk around completely undisturbed. Entrance fee for us retirees is 2 euros. Take a walk around the Church, beautifully with Palm trees and cypresses.

  • One of the few touristic sites in Barcelona that does not require you to sell a kidney. For 3 euros, you get to enjoy a nice retreat away from the crowded areas of Barcelona, with the added plus of diving back in time.
  • Très jolie cadre
  • Little-known church with cloister and erected in the 10th century, although it is simple at its core, is a must see as it's a little gem of Barcelona. It costs 3 euro, 2 for students

  • A jewel of Romanesque art to be discovered in the District of el Raval. The only thing there is a lady at the entrance that asks you to pay him to enter Yes or Yes, but without input...
