Carrer del Carme, Barcelona
Carrer del Carme (official Catalan name; Spanish: Calle del Carmen) is a street in central Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, located in the Raval neighbourhood of the Ciutat Vella district. It's part of the recently revamped commercial area of Raval. This street contains the main offices of Institut d'Estudis Catalans and Societat Catalana de Geografia, as well as the Catholic church Església de Betlem, built in the Baroque style, and the public library Biblioteca Sant Pau-Santa Creu, based in the former building of Hospital de la Santa Creu, which was moved to El Guinardó. The street is notable for being mentioned on the first page of Jean Genet's novel The Thief's Journal.
It must not be confused with Plaça del Carmén (Carmen is a common typo in online guides which often redirects to that one), in the Les Corts district, or with other streets that bear the same name in other cities.
