"take time out to discover as..." Gracia Tip by donal

Gracia, Barcelona: 5 reviews and 7 photos


Favorite thing: take time out to discover as many of the wonderful neighbourhoods as possible. to an outsider everywhere in barcelona can be magical, it does have a pretty unique feel.
one amazing neighbourhood where many people spend an absolute lifetime is called gracia, it's just above the centre of town and is very much its own community with loads of great eating spots, bars and the excellent pair of verdi cinemas which also show great movies with the english soundtrack intact!
placa del sol at the centre of gracia has a great concentration of bars and gets really lively at the weekends, especially bar mond, centre of barcelona's pop phenomenon!
the gracia authorities are trying to quieten the place down about so outdoor drinking and eating may fade out soon which is a shame.

Fondest memory: my favourite thing about barcelona is spending all night having a laugh and then staying up to enjoy the sunshine the day after. sitting on a beach after my first sonar stands out in particular.
this photo shows how beautiful barcelonan sunsets can be too - taken from the barcelonetta end - great part of twon for little cafes and just wandering around chaotic streets.
