Sant Pau del Camp, Barcelona

4.5
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.

  • Oldest church in Barcelona in the Raval district. Worth seeing is the cloister with its Romanesque arches and the church space. The monastery and church form one of the oldest still intact buildings in Barcelona. While life reigns outside, here is absolute silence, a place of rest to slow down in the middle of the city. Admission € 5,--, used for conservation and restoration.

  • Best thing about the wandering way of exploring new cities is finding unexpected treasures like this.
  • We were aimlessly walking on side streets and came upon this delightful chapel. Well worth the visit.
