Barri de Gracia, Barcelona
(4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Walk around one of Barcelona’s hippest and most vibrant neighborhoods, Barri de Gracia. Relax in the Plaça de Sol, a lively square lined with places to eat, bars, and 19th-century architecture. Relish the small bohemian village atmosphere of the area, which was separate from the city until 1897. Gràcia’s mix of trendy boutiques and traditional Spanish stores make it an ideal place to pick up a souvenir. Be sure to visit its most famous attraction, Parc Güell, a park designed by famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Use our Barcelona vacation planner to visit Barri de Gracia on your trip to Barcelona, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
