A lot of people even if locals told us it’s supposed to be quiet and relaxing. Very touristic but also very beautiful with a lot to do. The architecture is amazing and beautiful. Loved the shops and the cafes during the afternoon when we were...More
This is a nice district, but Barcelona is actually full of similar areas. We spent several days in Barcelona and loved every minute! Barri de Gracia has plenty of things to see and do and there is never a dull moment. There are many restaurants...More
That use to be a quiet real neighborhood not many years ago, where you could sit in one of the many squares and have a drink and have a lively pleasant afternoon. Nowadays, it's a hipster tourist trap that mostly smells like pee, with lots...More
I live in Spain now and go to this area often. It’s a must see for any visit to Barcelona. Very touristy unfortunately but for good reason. They are lots of great restaurants and cafes. Avoid the busy streets and head down the quiteter street...More
Overall this is a nice area with Gran de Gracia dominating with it's long thoroughfare full of shops and some beautiful buildings above them. Placa del Sol is a quiet little square just off of the main drag with nice cafes to sit and people...More
The Barri de Gracia is a non-touristy neighborhood of Barcelona. A village style neighborhood with strong character and lots of charm. This is where the locals live, so it's relaxed and laid back. Short walk to the Sagrada Famalia and a longer walk to Parc...More
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 center, 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
vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.

Hi. Little known fact - on Main Street parking is free in Barcelona on Saturday & Sunday. We found parking plentiful on those days - we had a hire car and moved it out onto the street on the weekend to take advantage of the free parking. We stayed at the Corner Hotel which was a short walk across the Avenida Diagonal to get to the Gracia district. There was plentiful street parking there. Quite close to the Corner Hotel (100m) is a Hospital with a large multi-storey car park. That might be an option midweek. Hope this helps.
The Gracia festival was really worth a visit - we stumbled upon it by accident, but the area was buzzing.
