Three of the most well known Plaças in Barcelona are within a few walking minutes from the apartment. These three Plaças are well-worth the visit, especially at night when you can feel the heat of Gracia.
The square Plaça del Sol is very lively at nighttime with a bohemian vibe coming from skaters, musicians and street performers. You can see local young people sitting and having a cold beer while listening to guitar music. Plaça de la Virreina is a pretty square where you can sit on the steps of the church of Sant Joan on the north end and watch locals wandering. Last but not least, Plaça del Diamant is a square that the famous Mercé Rodoreda’s The Time Of The Doves novel (La Plaça del Diamant) named after. This novel is the most widely translated and published Catalan novel of all time. The novel is a brutal story of a young woman devoured by the Spanish civil war. On one side of the square, there is a bronze statue of a woman waving her hands in the air in desperation, which portrays the novel’s protagonist.
In the surrounding hilly green areas, you will find Gaudi's Park Guell. A short hike to the top, and you will have an incomparable view of the city.
The Fontana metro station that takes you straight to Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas is within 2 walking minutes from the apartment.
