The square in the famous quarter Gracia is sporting a big tower with a clock on top. Arround the square are cafes and restaurants. The place is very vivid, with, for instance, kids, locals and tourist, playing football.

It was not clear what this was all about but this area of Gracia has small streets and is not well known by tourists but worth a walk. Go north from Diagonal near Passieg Gracia and you will find it.

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
