This church is on the corner of the Ramblas and is often not open unless it is near to mass times. I attended the 8pm Sunday mass and it was... More

It originally was a Baroque building that was the first home of the Jesuits in Catalonia and the largest college of the University. Following a fire, a new temple was completed in 1732, but another fire during the 1936 Spanish Civil War caused major... More

Sadly, it was burnt again in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War and lot of its invaluable treasures and works of art were destroyed... More

Excellent service and flavors. Very reasonable prices and helpful, friendly staff. We went two nights in a row due to the excellent food and wine. If you sit outside it is a noisy corner but we loved the people watching. Tiny inside area which was packed. Once people give this place a try they come back. Spanish omelette of black... More

The church of La Rambla. La Rambla was the walled street between the Gothic Quarter and the Ravel which was a newer district within the walls. As a part of the new district, it is not unusual to see this church with a more baroque style of interior and design. However, there is a clear underlying Catalan influence with is... More

The Church of Bethlehem is located in the El Ravel quarter on the Ramblas and is a rare example of the Baroque style. It's the site where the Jesuits were permitted to build their first church in 1555 that burned down in 1671 and rebuilt from 1680-1732 before the Jesuits were expelled in 1767. In 1936 the church was partially... More

Very easy to make a prayer stop here off of La Rambla. A very well maintained Catholic Church with statues of the Birth of Jesus. Glad we stopped!!!

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
