Gracia is one of Barcelona’s most popular neighbourhoods for travellers from all over the world. It has an electric charm that is perhaps drawn from its Mediterranean architecture, cozy narrow streets, hippy & cosmopolitan make-up, numerous small bars, and restaurants that host revellers until late into the night. It is home to Parc Guell and Casa Vicens, some of the beautiful creations by Barcelona’s most renowned architect, Antonio Gaudi.
Why stay in Gracia?
Aside from being a lively neighbourhood hosting one of the most famous landmarks in Barcelona, Gracia is the “place to be” especially for those traveling to Barcelona in August.

Gracia is easily accessible by public transport which adds to why it is a great neighbourhood to stay in and experience a slice of real life in Barcelona.
