Private room with direct access to a beautiful terrace in a silent, big apartment in Verdi street (in the very heart of Gracia). Private shower. Bed size 180x200cm. The area is full of excellent shops, restaurants and lively squares. 5' walk to metro (3 stops from Plaça Catalunya). 10' walk to Parc Güell. 20' walk to Sagrada Familia. Our place is good for couples and business travelers.
What is there to see in Gracia? Well the main attraction is of course Park Guell, on the outskirts of the district. Antoni Gaudi's famous gardens are one of the top attractions in Barcelona so naturally there's a treadmill of tourists that alight at Placa Lesseps and make their way to the park that featured famously in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, L'Auberge Espagnol and other classic movies. Thankfully, for those that prefer quieter spots, most won't venture into the heart of the district, where certified tourist spots are few and far between (the exception is perhaps Casa Vicens, although you can't go in), but there's much fun to be had by wandering around. There are so many great little squares, and cute cafes like La Fourmi or Vreneli Cafe, where you can stop for a drink and simply enjoy hanging out.
Later in the evening Gracia becomes a real hub of Barcelona's nightlife, and with great bars like La Cigale, Tournesol and many more, it's easy to see why. Generally speaking Gracia venues are all about eating, drinking and socialising, and whereas there are a few select places to dance, the district is more for making merry making in the traditional way.
The one time of the year when Gracia really goes off though is of course in mid-August during the Festa Major de Gracia! During this rambunctious festival the residents of the barri hold a competition of "best dressed street" and half of the city descends night after night for a right royal knees up that involves plenty of beers, live music, mojitos and dancing. Definitely a date for your diary.
- Smoking is allowed in the terrace
