Convento de Sant Agusti

The Sant Agusti Convent was built in 1349. It was built as the residence of the nuns of Saint Agustin. This was their main residence until 1713 when the Citadel was sieged. They moved their church into the Raval neighbourhood and set up the New Church of Saint Agustin. This well-hidden courtyard inside is one of the main attractions. Although it may be small in size it’s pretty big in personality and character. With its stunning architecture and magnificence most likely to leave you mesmerized and in awe. It also houses the museum of chocolate, the Barcelona photography archives, as well as one of the renowned pastry schools of Barcelona. I’d recommend heading to the Convent Café to sample one of their pastries which are all exquisite and made right there on the grounds. I usually end up stocking a huge selection of bonbons when I come here.
