The Plaça de Sant Felip Neri and the bombing of the Civil War

This square was one of the ancient city areas most damaged during the bombings by the Italian air forces (1938): the impact of shrapnel can still be seen on the façade of the church.

Handmade soap. Family run business with 37 years of experience working with soap and on skin care.
On the 30th of January 1938, the Italian air forces bombed the area of the Cathedral and the Plaça Nova, affecting buildings in Carrer Sant Domènec del Call and in Plaça de Sant Felip Neri. Part of the complex of Sant Felip Neri collapsed, killing many people. The current square is the result of a mid-twentieth century radical urbanisation with new buildings, all aligned, except for the church. In this new development some medieval buildings were moved from the rubble of the opening of Via Laietana. One of them was the old shoemakers' guild, the current Museum of the Shoes. In the middle Ages the square was connected to Carrer del Bisbe, across the carrer de  Montjuïc del Bisbe. This building is a new construction of the late 1950s in order to restore and design new facades to the buildings of the square. In the 14th century, Isaac Bisbal lived in this area. Other nearby buildings were owned by members of the Gracià (hebr. Hen) family, who owned several houses in the Jewish quarter (el Call).
