Església de Betlem

Church in La Rambla & Barri Gòtic

On La Rambla with Carrer del Carme, this church was constructed in baroque style for the Jesuits in the late 17th and early 18th centuries to replace a church destroyed by fire in 1671. Fire was a recurring theme for this site: the church was considered the most splendid of Barcelona’s few baroque offerings, but anarchists torched it in 1936.
