Plaça Sant Felip Neri

As an historical site, the Plaça de Sant Felip Neri has a baroque church.

On the walls of the church, you can still see remnants of the shrapnel from a bomb dropped by the aviation of the fascist side, of General Franco, during the Spanish Civil War. It was the January 30th, 1938 causing forty-two fatalities, most of them children who had taken refuge in the basement of the church and died from the blast.

Woody Allen used the space for a scene of his film "Vicky Cristina Barcelona", where a terrace of a restaurant is displayed.
Super capture of the atmosphere - a sad story.
