The San Felipe Neri Square is a small square in the Gothic Quarter, in the area of ​​the Old Town of Barcelona. It takes its name from the church of San Felipe Neri, dominant in the square. To the right of the church is the San Felipe Neri School, which uses the square as a playground. To the left of the church is the house of the Oratorians. In the center of the square there is an octagonal fountain, which is a symbol of life. The architecture of the square and the surrounding buildings are made in medieval baroque.nOn January 30, 1938, one of the Franco bombs fell on the church, killing 30 people, most of whom were children from the San Felipe Neri School, and some were refugee children from Madrid, for whom the church served as a temporary shelter. The evidence of those events remains the damage saved from the bombing on the wall of the church. Subsequently, the Franco authorities spread the myth that there were traces of bullets from anarchists who executed church priests.
