Gracia

The Gracia district is a high-end place with a small village atmosphere. High-end fashion retail meets modern architecture and even some Gaudi.

Know Before You Go

Gracia is perfect for a relaxed walk just before dinner.
Lots of squares to sit at, have a drink and people watch.
Lots of activities and concerts at the "Fiestas de Gracia" in the summer.
A nice area to stay, with not many tourists.
North of the Passeig de Gracia, and one of the main thoroughfares in Barcelona, the Gracia quarter has retained its quaint village like atmosphere, yet offers a high end experience. Small squares are peppered throughout the streets which are lined with upscale cafes, high-end fashion retails stores, banks and hotels. Showcasing classic Barcelona style buildings, a few of Gaudi’s works (such as Casa Batllo) and Modernista architecture, even the pavement has modern tiles, it’s a very interesting area for the architecture alone.

The district comes alive at night when groups of all ages form either standing on terraces or seated on benches. Mid-August offers the six day Festa Major during which every street is imaginatively decorated. Gracia is a very classy, intimate, and upscale place to visit.

Key Highlights

A very classy place to spend the day wandering around in.
