Plaza del Sol is one of many in Barcelona. There quite a few cafes and restaurants in the area as well as many other shops. We were there during the day and appeared to be a nice area. Don't know about night time!

As with most plaza's in Madrid these are a centre of social life. People congregate here after work and over weekends. Plaza del Sol is particularly vibrant. We spent some time here of the weekend and on a Monday. It gets REALLY busy! Nice to...More

Sit and relax. Non touristic spot and a great place if you want to get mixed up with the locals. Mostly crowded during the night.

This is a small square in the Gracia are and there is essentially nothing here but a few restaurants around the square. There are better places in Gracia.

Not recommended. Some people sitting in the floor with no ambiance at all. Not my type of plan. Hippie style.

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

international artists to this area, resulting in a

boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
