An air of countryside in the middle of the Raval. The cloister of the monastery Benedictine from the XII century will retain you for its quietness.
The church or monastery of Sant Pau del Camp (Spanish for Saint Paul of the countryside) is the oldest church in Barcelona. While the monastery now sits within the El Raval barrio of central Barcelona, it once sat outside the city; its rural location gave the church its name.
Construction began late in the ninth century, to replace a previous church destroyed by Muslim invaders in 985.
