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.

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.
