Why should you stay here?
It is real Catalonia. Its traditional food market offers local cheeses, fish, and fresh fruit and vegetables and the prices are good while the quality is as great as you would expect.
The district of Gracia is often compared with Montmartre of Paris because of its bohemian and arty atmosphere. It is very popular among the young people due to its night life, ambience and establishments. Gracia was founded in XVII century as an independent village near Barcelona, but in 1897 it was annexed into Barcelona.
Still nowadays it retains the village appearance with small cozy squares, narrow streets, people with strong Catalonian identity and traditions. Although it became as well one of the most trendy and expensive areas to live, attracting the people with its excellent examples of Catalan modernist architecture, traditional shops, small markets, plenty of hip locals, nice restaurants, from Irish and Latin clubs to old and modern bars.
Gràcia is totally self-sufficient. That is to say you could stay in Gràcia and never have to leave, there are good amenities of every sort, bars, cozy cafes, a real Mediterranean lifestyle. Whilst everything like the buildings, streets and plaças are in much smaller scale than those in the center of town there is some striking art nouveau architecture to be seen.
