    This atmospheric little square at the heart of the Gothic quarter has a legacy that has left its mark in the most tangible way; the pock marks of shrapnel scarring the walls of the school which suffered a bombardment during the Spanish Civil War. Forty-two people lost their lives in the bombing, half of them children, after trying to take refuge in the baroque church next door. It’s an arresting history that lends the little square an almost magical, if tragic, allure. Aim to visit early morning when it’s at its most characterful.

    For escapism in the core of the city, my favorite place is Plaça de Sant Felip Neri in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. The square has a tragic history - it was hit by a bomb during the Civil War killing those hiding in the church which dominates it's side - but despite this it has an unequaled sense of peace. Take your book and lose a few hours here. Hotel Neri offers a fabulous lunch menu.
