Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Isabel ApariciIt is worth to reach the Church of Sant Pau. The place is charming: the Romanesque scale small and cozy, where the capitals with evil animals are so close that they seem to come out of the stone. The cloister "Pocket" is beautiful. If possible, follow one of the guided tours offering the mosen: get us to live the place with their explanations but also when singing Gregorian to observe the great acoustics of the Church. Memorable.show original
