Barcelona, a photo a day

The Filipino church


Saint Augustine, the roman catholic Filipino parish church in the Raval. It is quite a new church, as it is barely 260 years old.
The Filipino community is quite big, over 15000 of them.

  1. Wow. I didn't realize there were so many Filipinos in Barcelona. Between them and the Spanish, I think I would feel very much at home there. 😛

    Thank you for this, Rob! My husband now knows that Barcelona is my dream vacation destination. Soon, I hope — though “soon” for us means a few years.

    Your definition of “new” made me smile.

  5. Such an old church. Must have lots of memories. Imagine all the people from a few eras that has walked through its grounds!
