The Església de la Puríssima Concepció, on Carrer d’Aragó, was built in the 13th century as a convent for nuns on what is now Via Laietana. But when the city was redeveloped in the 19th century, the church and the cloister had to be dismantled and taken to their new site, block by block. The 14th century cloister has two levels with galleries, and a garden that invites meditation.
