Another masterpiece of architecture , different than the ones from Gaudi. We have not visited it, just look at it from the outside.

Gràcia has become my favorite barrio in Barcelona. This area is close enough to Old Town but less tourists and more locals. There is a ton of restaurants to choose from and feels safe when you are there at night.

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.

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

Carrer d'Asturies, plaça del sol, but the best way is to get lost during 2 or 3 hours !

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.!
