Barcelona St George Romanian Orthodox Parish

Parròquia ortodoxa romanesa Sant Jordi Barcelona

English

The Barcelona St George Romanian Orthodox Parish began building their church in 2011 at C/ Capella Street 25. The work was supposed to last 18 months but it is still going on.

The church, which is on a small but well-located piece of land, lies in a street which has very little traffic but is very close to the Camp de l’Arpa metro station. It is divided into three clearly differentiated spaces: a basement with multipurpose classrooms that also serve as a function room for cultural activities and small celebrations; an annexe with a belfry and parish offices; and the church itself, in the Brâncovenesc (Byzantine with Romanesque influence) style, with some features similar to Catalan architecture, such as the arches and exposed brick facing.

One of its most notable features will be the wall painting and the technique used for that: a Romanesque fresco like the one found in the Vall de Boí. They will use the same technique that artists used in the Middle Ages.
