The cafes, shops, squares, tiny streets, people... all great. A great neighbourhood to spend the day in Barcelona. Sadly it’s getting a bit crowded lately.

We enjoyed a couple of our favorite meals, from fine dining to churros, in this area. If you are staying nearby, it's worth walking through. Fewer tourists, more real BCN.

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.

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

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.!
