The Gracia Festival is not much frequented by tourists. So I hesitate to let the secret out. But it's only a week in August, so I can't do too much harm. But if, when you travel, you like to do the local things, then this...More

Highly recommend spending a few hours wandering around Barri de Gracia. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to check out as well as alleyways and streets to get lost in, take in the sights and get a feel for the local life.

If you're there at the time for Fiesta de Gracia, this is a must. Each block seems to have its own theme, there are many stages set for live music, and there is cold draft beer (as well as other drinks) everywhere. It's a bit...More

The area is popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd, it also has a high ethnic population and the highest concentration of foreign restaurants in Barcelona. Plaça de Sol is the most renowned area of the neighbourhood, it's lined with terrace cafes and at...More

If you go to Barcelona, get here before it becomes so "gentrified" it is no longer genuine. So far, it has managed to do the perfect dance between being trendy while still being mostly a local-based neighborhood. El Born is going to a similar transformation...More

My favourite spot in the city. Lose yourself for hours, or even days in the "city of liberty". It's all about Barcelona.

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.!
