BARCELONA GOTHIC QUARTER: SANT JUST I PASTOR

Today I would like to show you another church and square architectural complex inside the Gothic Quarter: Plaça de Sant Just and Sant Just i Pastor church. In previous posts I have spoken about the other church and square sets, as lovely as this one, like Plaça del Pi and Santa Maria del Pi church or Plaça de Sant Felip Neri and Sant Felip Neri church.

Although Plaça de Sant Just isn't as well-known as the previous ones, it's also a lovely place to visit, another oasis in Barcelona city centre.
