"Sants Just i Pastor church" Churches Tip by tompt

Churches, Barcelona: 19 reviews and 51 photos


This romanesque gothic church was built in 1342, but work on it continued into the 16th century. Above the entrance portal, an enthroned Virgin is flanked by a pair of protective angels. The Latin inscription hails her as Virgo Nigra et Pulchra, Nostra Patrona Pia (Black and Beautiful Virgin, Our Holy Patroness). There is a single nave with the chapels. Doors are usaually closed expect for Sunday Mass, we were lucky there was a marriage planned and we could enter.
It is one of the oldest churches in Barcelona and is dedicated to the two martyrs, Just and Pastor.

Address: Pl. de Sant Just, 5
in the Gothic Quarter.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
