Typically known by tourists for its famous Gaudí-designed Park Güell, Gràcia was once a village of its very own. Then, toward the end of the 19th century, it joined the rest of the city when the nearby Eixample district was constructed.
Now it’s popular among a bohemian crowd, offering a unique taste of authentic Barcelona, minus the madness that you might find in the city center. Packed with bars, it’s a hot spot among locals for its lively nightlife, and is a lesser-known destination among travelers.
