In summer little flowers from the trees fall and cover this square in a carpet of yellow- can't get any more romantic than this!
- This beautiful Baroque church, built in honor of San Felipe Neri, is located in the Call district of the Barri Gòtic, an area which was once the Jewish district of Barcelona. The church is right in the middle of Plaça Sant Felip Neri, a trapezoid shaped square. This square used to border the edges of the Jewish quarter and was built on the remains of what was once a Jewish cemetery. This is one of the quieter areas of the Gothic Quarter and is reminiscent of other times. Visiting the square is the best way to get into the mood for a visit to the Baroque church, whose facade still shows bullet holes dating back to the Spanish Civil War. In its interior you can still find Baroque details in the moldings, altars, and paintings.
