Jesuit church of Sacred Heart

The Church of the Sacred Heart of Barcelona, located on Casp Street, was built at the end of the 19th century by the architects Joan Martorell i Montells and Camil Oliveras i Gensana. It presents a pre-modernist style, with Romanesque and Byzantine influences, and stands out for its Greek cross plan and its large central dome. Among its treasures is a sword that St. Ignatius left as an ex-voto in the monastery of Montserrat in 1522, thus linking this place with the Ignatian Way. This church, located in the Eixample neighborhood, is a space of deep spirituality and offers masses in Spanish, attracting the local community and visitors in search of reflection and serenity. Its charming architecture and interior, reminiscent of the sacred heart of Montmartre in Paris, make it a jewel worthy of a visit in the heart of Barcelona.
