A ROMANESQUE CHURCH IN HEART OF CIUTAT VELLA.

Writer, journalist, painter, sketcher ..., in one word : "Tisner". Through constant repetition, people have ended up mistaking his pseudonym for his real name. Now 86 years old - 24 of which spent in exile -, Tisner is one of the most veteran exponents of Catalan literature still professionally active. Under the Spanish Republican government, he was subeditor of "La Publicitat" and co-editor of "L'esquella de la Torratxa". And he is still writing newspaper articles. Now, for the "Interior Tourism" section of our magazine, he has chosen to portray a historical corner of the Ciutat Vella district in which very few Barcelona residents have ever set foot : the Church of Sant Pau del Camp.
