Barrio Review Numero Uno - GRACIA

I remember one hot summer afternoon i spent in Park Guell but other than that Gracia did not make a huge impression on me. Now looking at all the recommendations all over the web it sounds to be the place to be! I'll definately check it out! New home... maybe! :D

This district, an ancient village enclosed in Barcelona’s city centre is a favourite. Shops, retro and trendy boutiques, nice restaurants, bars and cafés, charming little squares… Take it easy & enjoy a sunny nap or a shady coffee.Musicians, designers and artists of all sorts have made this Bohemian neighbourhood one the nicest in Barcelona. For those who are after the real Barcelona. Ideal location for longer stays.
  • Plaza del Sol, Rius i Taulet, de la Virreina : bars, restaurants, terraces.
  • Carrer Gran de Gracia : Belle Epoque buildings.
  • Cinéma Verdi : for cinema lovers.
  • Parc Güell : close to Gracia, a phantasmagoric park by Gaudi.
