We are not Catholic but it is Easter Sunday so we went to the 11:00 Mass. It is not one of the ornate churches with a lot of huge statues but felt like my kind of church. They have a huge sounding organ that was played well. The sound system was good as we could hear the priest and the singer well. It was a very good service even though we didn't understand a word.

Not the most ornate church you will see, but that is part of its peaceful charm. Located just off La Rambla this is a no entry fee stop worth 15 to 30 minutes of time. The main church is simplistic and calming. On the sides are small chapels with various carvings, some simple and some quite beautiful and elaborate.

A lovely Catholic church,built in the 1500s- it has suffered from several disasters eg fire and war, which has destroyed some irreplaceable treasures but it is still tranquil and beautiful. This church is on the corner of the Ramblas and is often not open unless it is near to mass times. I attended the 8pm Sunday mass and it was beautiful with the Macarena choir- the web site will give you opening times. A really lovely church to visit and easily found.

This beautiful old church is right on La Rambla and makes for a nice peaceful stop and a respite from the crowded street.

The Las Ramblas Mother of God Church of Barcelona started as a Jesuit temple in 1553. It originally was a Baroque building that was the first home of the Jesuits in Catalonia and the largest college of the University. Following a fire, a new temple was completed in 1732, but another fire during the 1936 Spanish Civil War caused major damage. Restorations were made from 1991-1992. A main facade scene of the birth of Jesus is claimed to be the first known Nativity. Other outstanding elements include ceramics by the artist Manuel Padros, the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of the tabernacle, oil paintings in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Forsaken, and a door featuring the Child Jesus.
