Sant Felip Neri is a extremely peaceful square near Barcelona's cathedral.
Apart from its beauty, Sant Felip Neri has a very dramatic history: some kids died in it while they were looking for refuge when there was a bomb attack. Morevover, during the Spanish Civil war, some excutions took place there.
Although all of this, Sant Felip Neri's charm is undeniable. In fact, Evanescence their videoclip "My immortal" here.

The plaza is most famous for it's terribly marked walls from executions and/or bombings. It's interesting that depending on who you talk to about the genesis of the scarred walls you'll hear different things - anarchists executing priests, the fascist army bombing a orphanage...
