“Great place - maybe too crowded during las fiestas mayor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Nice place, really chnaging and maybe to much victim of gentrification.
Now there is not anymore this popular atmosphere and everything is too cool, but it is still something apart from Barcelona with its own character.

If you don't like the crowd please avoid Fiestas mayor de Gracia in August!

“Wouldn't stay anywhere else, felt like a local, not a touris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Plus we loved the narrow streets, miles and miles, in every direction. There are great women's fashions in the little shops, and sidewalk stores that open up on Saturday mornings. Amazing! Not to mention, bread shops, patisseries, bars, endless charming restaurants. Almost didn't need to go anywhere else. Safe to walk around all hours of the night. People of all ages walk around at midnight and beyond. This neighborhood is close to several attractions: Sagrada Familia, Guel Park, short metro ride to Tibidabo.

“Saturday day or night fiesta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

The Barri de Gracia on a Saturday night is wonderfully alive - full of locals having a great time. Great drinks and tapas anywhere. Sit down and grab a vino tinto anytime.

“Lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

We walked around looking for a quaint eatery and came across Barri de Gracia, it is a lovely quiet and it has many small eateries in the little lanes surrounding the Square. We found a lovely past place that does fresh pasta and the freshest sauces, only a few different pasta and sauces but the fresh taste is wonderful. A great little area with a relaxed and romantic feel.
