Another Gaudi house, this was one of my favorites because of the woodwork inside. Was also nice and cool from the outside heat. It borders on one of the sketchier parts of town so watch your belongings on the walk there.

The Gracia area is small streets north of Diagonal and around Passieg de Garcia and is worth a visit . It is quite different to the area below Diagonal and it has small stores and restaurants and interesting squares.Worth a visit.

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.!
