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.

  • We took a stroll by the remains of the wall of Barcelona in the Drassanes, walking reach the rambla del raval, where this monastery. Small but maintains all the essence of the Romanesque. It's worth the time. You can finish the morning getting Sant Antoni market, 10 minutes. A couple of hours, quiet ride and knowing a Barcelona hides.

  • A beautiful Romanesque church, too bad I found it closed upon our arrival, gives a religious-ethnic district of the raval Barcelona breath.

  • The Church is very old and I think that's his biggest appeal, because it is very well preserved. Is small and simple and not impressed me. I advise you to visit, so also the neighbourhood of El Raval, only if you have time to spare.

  • 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...
