The church of Santa Anna is one of those places in Barcelona that goes unnoticed by many visitors and is a real shame! It is an amazing place!
The lovely church of St. Anna is located in the city center but in a place hidden from the people. To get to it you can do it from the Plaça Catalunya, down the Avenida Portal de l’Angel and turn right onto Santa Anna. When you are near the middle of the street you will see a small site where a florist hides and gives access to a plaza (Plaza Ramon Amadeu) There is the church of Santa Anna!
In the Plaza Ramón Amadeu, opposite the church of Santa Anna, sure we call attention to a stone cross in the middle of the place. And there we’ll see the entrance.
The entry cost is 2 € but totally worth paying. The church of Santa Anna declared a national monument in 1881 and has also been declared a national cultural interest.
The church of Santa Anna was founded in the twelfth century and renovated in the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, so their style is a synthesis of Romanesque and early Gothic subsequent reforms.
The plan of the church of Santa Anna is a Latin cross with one nave vaults features on Romanesque walls. Inside are the chapels of All Saints, the s. XII, and Perdons dels, the s. XIV. The cloister, slender arches, is the s. XV and the Chapter House, which features an octagonal vault.
Do not forget to visit the cloister with its double gallery and all vegetation!
