Sant Felip Neri

The name refers both to the square and the church.

The church is one of the few examples of baroque architecture in the city.

Looking carefully you can see that the lower part of the façade is highly damaged: that is because of the bombings during the Civil War. 

It was the 30th of January 1938 when this area was bombed and more than forty people died, the majority of them were children, as next to the church there was, and there is still today, a school.
