Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Ironically now a peaceful square only a few metres from the crowded alleys of the old town. During the civil war a bomb exploded which you can still see at the walls of the church.

    We saw the outside of the synagogue, built on the ruins of an ancient Roman structure. The building itself is very small and nondescript, because in Medieval Spain a synagogue 🕍 was never allowed to be taller or bigger than the smallest church ⛪️ in the city.

    Just in front of my apartment. Very nice place to visit but too many homeless around. Could be dirty sometimes. Should look after it.

    In the lovely Plaza S. Pedro is this fine Benedictine Monastery. Although begun in the 10th century, little is still extant of the original.

    However it is a very impressive edifice in fine stone. An ornate entrance way is capped by a seated Saint. Gargoyles are another feature.

    At the Plaza’s centre is a decorative potable water fountain.

    One of the famous attraction in Barcelona is Park Guell (one of the famous architecture of Guadi) that you don't miss, and also don't miss this Real Santuario San Jose de la Montana because this place is near and good to see, great to know.

    This New Byzantine style church was built in 1929 and is practically hidden from view behind the trees. The church was under the jurisdiction of the nuns of the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel or the Carmelites - thanks to which it received the name that it bears to this day. As for the Carmelite sisters, they were forced to leave their home during the dramatic events of the Spanish Civil War.

    A pleasant small monastery located far away of the touristic attractions. Worth for a visit for a 3-4 time in Barcelona.

    The Chapel of Santa Ágata is of Gothic architecture dating back to 1302.

    Its located in the Plaza del Rey in the Gothic Quarter. It now forms part of the history museum.

    Restoration of this building began in 1856 and again in 1990s with works on the roof, the ceiling, the lighting and consolidation of the bell tower.

    Its not spectacular and I did notice the exterior walls could do with a cleanup.

    this is the first synagogue opened in the Iberia Peninsula after 1492, where all jews were expelled from Spain. It is full of history. It is marvellous. It has the biggest synagogue temple in Barcelona. Also it has the single MIKVE in all Barcelona. I do recommend to visit it.

    Really interesting to learn about the temple, Jewish community, Black plague, and the destruction of the Jewish quarter. It is very very small. A restaurant occupies part of what used to be the synagogue. It is hard to find in the shadow of the Catedral even the tourist office had a hard time directing us. But that is why it is important to visit.

    We came across Parroquia de Sant Miquel del Port while walking around the streets of Barceloneta. More often than not, the best way to see a city is by just wandering around and "getting lost" in the streets. We like to do this a lot while travelling. This lovely, 18th century church just appeared in front of us, so to speak. We did not go inside but stood outside and admired for some time. It is not a huge building but it is big enough. Worth a stop, if you happen to be in the vicinity.
