What people are saying:

This is a quiet little corner in the Gothic Quarter, look out for the baroque style church and it will lead you to this plaça. Undeniably peaceful and tranquil this is the perfect spot to escape the crowds during the summer. The labyrinth-like style of the Gothic Quarter means you may come across this unexpectedly like I did. Admire the beauty whilst listening to the trickling water from the fountain in the middle of the square. Also you might notice large craters in the side of the church, which are from dropped bombs that killed many children during the 1930s, once you know this the square takes on an eerie feel.

    October 2019 visit

    I was on a walking tour, when we went here. It is awful what has happened here in the past. It was nice to see lots of children playing in this area again. When I initially went here it was busy, b...
