Exterior and Cloister - Church of Santa Anna
Barcelona, Spain  

"On a narrow street a little to the east of the Plaça de Catalunya stands the Convent of Santa Anna, founded in the 12th C. by the Order of the Holy Sepulchre and dissolved in 1835. 

"The cloister and chapter-house, both of which still remain, were built in the 15th C.; many other parts from the same period were pulled down in the 19th C. Originally Romanesque in style, the church has a cruciform ground plan and rectangular choir."  - PlanetWare, Barcelona: Santa Anna
