Gràcia

Gràcia was a village located outside the city until the late 1800's. Even if this neighbourhood is only a 15-minute walk from Pl. Catalunya, it feels as if you are entering a completely new city when you walk into it.

Gràcia is Barcelona’s hippie neighbourhood and has its very own unique style. This is a popular area for students, musicians, artists, and activists. The combination makes Gràcia one of Barcelona's most exciting neighbourhoods..

In recent years, the green revolution has arrived in Gràcia. There are lots of organic bakeries, fruit stores, etc.
Because of its many squares, it is very easy to find a nice outdoor cafe. And when the bars close you can still find people on the streets selling cans of beer until dawn. The party never ends in Gràcia, where there are more bars per square metre than in any other neighbourhood in Barcelona.

Gràcia is also host to Barcelona's - and one of Spain's - most popular neighbourhood street parties: La Festa, Gràcia. The festival is held every year in the middle of August and the party goes on for 7 days and 7 nights. One of the reasons that the festival has become so popular is that the local people compete on who can best decorate their streets. And they take it very seriously.

Shopping is also very good in Gràcia, with a mix of small hip stores and large, well-known brands.



Accommodation in Gràcia

Gràcia is for those who want to see and experience something different and authentic during their stay in Barcelona. Gràcia is a safe and friendly neighbourhood with a big selection of restaurants from all over the world. During the weekend it is noisy but cheerful. Gràcia has a central position and most tourist attractions are easily within walking distance. Strangely enough, there is still only a small amount of tourists in Gràcia, which gives you the feeling that you have just discovered something new and unexplored. There are few hotels but a wide selection of apartments. 

Our favourite hotels and apartments in Gràcia:
