Sit and relax. Non touristic spot and a great place if you want to get mixed up with the locals. Mostly crowded during the night.

This is a small square in the Gracia are and there is essentially nothing here but a few restaurants around the square. There are better places in Gracia.

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
