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.
Take time, on the evening, full of life, small yards, dozen of bars and small restaurants, boutiques, self made small silverpieces to sell,, crowded with young people . Enjoy it. You need not to be bussy ir pressed on time, This part is an important...More
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
Great place to stay very central and not crazy touristy. Great food and shopping too. Must go to Hofman restaurant loved the lunch options at most restaurants Mon - Fri between 1 and 3 pm. fixed price..
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
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
vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.

Hi. Little known fact - on Main Street parking is free in Barcelona on Saturday & Sunday. We found parking plentiful on those days - we had a hire car and moved it out onto the street on the weekend to take advantage of the free parking. We stayed at the Corner Hotel which was a short walk across the Avenida Diagonal to get to the Gracia district. There was plentiful street parking there. Quite close to the Corner Hotel (100m) is a Hospital with a large multi-storey car park. That might be an option midweek. Hope this helps.
The Gracia festival was really worth a visit - we stumbled upon it by accident, but the area was buzzing.
