Plaça Sant Felip Neri

A tiny square just behind Plaça de Garriga Bachs off the side of the cloister of the Catedral de la Seu, this was once a burial ground for Barcelona's executed heroes and villains, before all church graveyards were moved to the south side of Montjuïc, the present site of the municipal cemetery. The church of San Felip Neri here is a frequent venue for classical concerts. Fragments of a bomb that exploded in the square during the Civil War made the pockmarks on the walls of the church.
