About Former Monastery Sant Agusti

Views: 368. Updated: Sep 30, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

Construction dating from 1349. After the siege of 1713 to 1714 the citadel was constructed and the Augustinians were moved to the Raval neighbourhood, Hospital street where between 1728 and 1750 they built a new church and convent.

Most of the old convent in La Ribera zone was demolished to construct the barracks however not all of the monastery was destroyed by the citadel. What survived is the west wing of the cloisters and one side of the church and has been restored to make a a civic centre with a chic cafe Bar.
