Gracia, The Green Neighborhood of Barcelona.

Gracia, The Green Neighborhood of Barcelona.

Today I want to write about my favorite neighborhood in Barcelona. The District of Gracia; where street art is fascinating, the sense of being ecological is immersed in the life of every local and tradition perfumes the streets with joy.

STREET ART

To lose yourself in Gracia is like getting lost in a modern museum, you find so much street art apart from also finding innovative locals. Many things happen around this little neighborhood, being said that it is one of the happiest communities in Barcelona.

Due to the incredible amount of graffiti in Gracia, there are routes that one can put together. As I always prefer to get lost, I recommend you do the same and be surprised with what you can find.

MY FAVORITE PLAZA IN GRACIA

LA PLAZA DEL SOL

A charming plaza build around 1840. Its beauty comes from the surrounding buildings that still maintain facades of the period. An interesting fact for you to know, the locals of Gracia find this plaza as one of their favorite! You can find it always full of young people enjoying life with a beer in hand. Day or night is an ideal place to visit, get lost in the variety of bars & locals around.
