The parish of Santa Anna is almost hidden in the eyes of most passersby and that’s exactly why we think it’s a special place to go and see: A little jewel, an oasis of calm, right in the middle of this beautiful city and only for the true Barcelona lovers.
This small church is a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. According to some legends, during the Napoleonic invasion it was used
as shelter by the local resistance due to its hidden, almost secret, location. The parish suffered, like many other churches in Barcelona,
in history. It was almost completely burned down during the revolt of 1936 but thanks to the impeccable reconstruction today we can enjoy it.
You can access it from the Santa Anna street at a few meters from Las Ramblas but don’t be fooled by the flower stand at the entrance. Undoubtedly the most charming of this site is the cloister with double gallery and its copious vegetation.
During mass it is also accessible from the church. We are sure that you will enjoy the peaceful and quiet environment of this enclave.
