The remnants of a round church built in the 400's on grounds which once housed the barracks of the nomadic Roman soldiers - Castra Pergrinorum. To note are the beautifully coloured frescos lining the interior wall of the second ring of the church, which depict the stories of Christian martyrs with eerie and somehow humorous graphic details. Once on a tour the guide mentioned that in a room below the church there was a temple for pagan rituals held by the soldiers. You can still see the entry in to this room from above marked off.
The former factory buildings of the museum gives you a perfect picture of the textile production of the previous century. But even more interesting might be another important part of the museum called the 'TextileLab' which allows students, artists and designers to execute their designs on the machines. The idea to do so has gone through my head ever since.

This restaurant has been a Hollywood landmark for over 60 years. The interior looks like time has stood still. Go to the reastaurant area to have a nice piece of prime rib, and after dinner move to the lounge area where Elaine and Marty sing their oldies but goodies.

In 1938 during the Spanish Civil war, Francisco Franco laid siege to the city of Barcelona. On the 30 September 1938, one of Franco's bombs fell on the church killing 30 people most of whom were children from the School of Sant Philip Neri and some were refugee children from Madrid where the church had been turned into a make-shift orphanage. As people pulled survivors from the rubble, a second bomb hit the square, killing 12 more bringing the death toll to 42. It was the second worst bombing hit in Barcelona during the war. Evidence of the bombings can be seen in the pockmarked walls of the church.
