Barcelona’s Gràcia neighbourhood is a charming district with a distinct village feel. Gràcia actually used to be a town before being swallowed up as the city of Barcelona expanded, and it still retains its fierce independent spirit and atmosphere today. While it’s not the most central area of Barcelona, it’s a great spot from which to explore the city, and if you are staying elsewhere, it’s well worth a visit. Boasting key sights including legendary Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi’s Park Güell as well as his famous buildings Casa Batlló and Casa Milà, there’s lots to visit in the area, not to mention all the gorgeous squares, streets and side lanes that make up the heart of Gràcia. Of course, Gràcia also has some amazing foodie spots: here’s your guide to eating & drinking in the neighbourhood for 24 hours.
