The Barcelona district known as “Barri de Gràcia” is formed in its entirety by a group of houses in streets usually narrower than the average Barcelona streets, some buildings in that district dating back to the nineteenth century or the beginning of the twentieth. Until...More

Short walk from Passeig de Gracia/Diagonal. All restaurants/bars/tour bus very accessible. Lovely quiet bohemian area with late night bars but never rowdy or too noisy. Recommend.

BoHo/creative/neighborhood area. A bit slower pace and more locals. Less people than the main tourist areas. Lots of great shops and restaurants to explore. I would definitely recommend wandering through here.

Old district of Barcelona with special atmosphere. Day or night always is interesting. Just walk, enter in any small shop, or just take some tapas in any bistrot!

This is a great area. A maze of streets and small squares with small shops, bars and restaurants. There is the odd collection of market stalls, interesting architecture, colour and graffiti. Worth a visit but take a map- it's easy to lose your bearings!

It's worth taking a metro to visit this REAL neighbourhood not inundated with tourists where real Catalonians live. Pretty streets with many squares, cafes, and very neat shops to poke one's head into. There's even a storefront cat shelter where prospective new parents can sit...More

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the

I would recommend that you take the line L3(green line) and stop at station Fontana. It's the best way to go to Gracia.!
