Gràcia Tours

8 reviews
Known as the student and art quarter, and Barcelona’s hippest neighborhood, Gràcia is home to the Plaça del Sol, which is lined with Catalonian tapas bars, terraced restaurants, flower shops, and trendy boutiques. Once its own village, Gràcia also features the UNESCO-listed Park Güell, designed by Antoni Gaudi.
 
The Basics
Gràcia is one of the city’s most atmospheric and decidedly Catalonian neighborhoods. Tour the area on an e-bicycle tour of Barcelona to cover more ground; these tours typically visit other neighborhoods such as Raval, Eixample, the Gothic quarter, and Barceloneta as well. Foodies interested in Catalonian gastronomy can explore the local culinary scene on a guided food and wine tour.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Gràcia is a must-visit for artistic travelers, foodies, and those who want to see a different side of Barcelona.
  • Wear comfortable shoes; Gràcia is a big neighborhood and you’ll do a lot of walking.
  • If you’re visiting Park Güell, book your tickets ahead of time; they often sell out, especially during the summer.
  • Don’t forget to wear sunscreen and a hat; some areas of Gràcia lack shade.
 
How to Get There
Gràcia is connected to the rest of the city via the wide and posh Passeig de Gràcia. You can get there on foot from the old town, or ride the Barcelona metro to Fontana Station (Line 3).
 
When to Get There
Head to Gràcia during the day to have lunch at one of the trendy local cafés or shop the neighborhood boutiques. Come at night to enjoy the cocktail bars and tapas restaurants; this area is popular for a late-night dinner. Expect many local shops and restaurants to be closed during the month of August.
 
Gràcia Festa Major
You haven’t experienced Gràcia until you’ve seen it during its annual neighborhood festival, the Festa Major, each August. During this popular summer event, each street in Gràcia seeks to outdo the next with over-the-top decorations, and at night the entire neighborhood turns into one giant block party.
