francescorabottini Possibly the most beautiful square in Barcelona, yet also the most tragic. It was to the baroque church in this tiny square that Gaudi was travelling when he was run over by a tram in the Gran Via and subsequently died. It was also here that a Fascist bomb blast killed many people including 20 children sheltering in the church during the Civil War. There is a plaque to commemorate them, and you can still see evidence of the violent past in the pockmarked stone of the church.
Perhaps it is fitting that there is a school here now, and that children play peacefully around the fountain. The trees, fountain and absence of cars give the place an almost rural feel.
