Barri de Gràcia
Open all day (Local time)
Countless memorial squares and monuments decorate Barri de Gracia, a pocket of vibrant culture nestled inside contemporary Barcelona. Once its own town, Gracia boasts dozens of busy bars and nightclubs, unique restaurants serving up plenty of local flavor, as well as rustic narrow streets and charming antique buildings which are a welcome distraction from the steel skyscrapers of downtown Barcelona. Locals take their celebrations seriously, taking to the streets for Carnival, banging drums for Sant Medir, and, most important of all, adorning the streets throughout the month of August for Festa Major, a nationally renowned cultural event.
