The Place

When I was doing researc for our silent guide project I took a tour on Barcelona´s churches. Many times I was surprised of the beauty and the glory of the churches but one of them was in its own way above all. The church is called Sant Felip Neri and it´s found next to square with the same name. I search the entrance for a while and the rang the bell of the Sant Felip Neri school. I was told that the church is closed but when I wasn’t hiding my disappointment, the teller continued that I could sure ring the doorbell and ask if I could take a look at the interior. After guidance I found the church door and rang the bell. The old janitor came to open. I explained that I’m an honest, nice student from Finland who would be wery pleased if she had a chance to take a look at the church. “Si, si!” the janitor answered and led me to the chapel. The chapel was dim and I could smell the scent of candels. And at the same time someone was playing the organs and the powerfull sound filled the whole chapel. I stayed there a moment, listend to the music and watched the church art and all that made me feel sad and happy at the same time. It was an amazing moment to remember.
