Barcelona step by step: Gràcia

placa-del-sol-barri-de-gracia-barcelona

In the north of the city is the neighbourhood of Gràcia, which until the late nineteenth century was independent from Barcelona. It is currently one of Barcelona’s most popular neighbourhoods, and the one with the strongest personal identity, featuring numerous bars, restaurants, terraces, shops and theatres. It retains its original urban pattern of narrow streets and a rich network of squares which are always frequented by locals. At first glance, its most striking landmark is Gaudi’s Parc Güell, but the area has much more to offer. It’s a lively quarter, thanks in part to the groups that dance swing in Plaça de la Virreina or social meeting points like Plaça del Sol and Plaça Rius i Taulet. Cultural activity is also the order of the day here and the neighborhood is home of Teatre Lliure and Cinema Verdi, one of the city’s few cinemas that show movies in original language. Enjoy its nightlife! Closest metro station: Fontana.
