BCN's Oldest Church

Sant Pau del Camp has a mysterious history. Its origins unknown, it was first documented in the end of the first century and soon after attacked and nearly destroyed by Muslim troops. It was attacked and rebuilt several times thereafter. The remains from this tumultuous history are from the early 2nd century, making it the oldest Romanesque building in Barcelona. However, the interior of the church (on a Greek cross plan with a single aisle) and small cloister have had many additions over time, including intriguing biblical scenes and marble capitals from the 6th and 7th centuries. Archaeological evidence also suggests this site was a Roman cemetery from the 2nd-7th centuries. This church looks like it was built to withstand Moorish invasions, which it did.
