Gracia

Great For

Authentic Catalonian experience

Not Great For

Sightseeing and stereotypical tourist spots

Although very much a part of Barcelona, Gracia’s independent history gives it a sense of identity and personality completely unique to itself. Its layout, architecture and distinctly old-fashioned charm prove that, while Gracia may be small, there’s still an incredible amount to discover.

Although not a traditional tourist destination in the sense there aren’t as many world-famous attractions – and you won’t find many big chain restaurants – it’s instead ideal for those looking for a more authentic experience. Here you can enjoy traditional Catalonian food from cafes and street food vendors, check out local artists and shop for clothes and jewellery you can’t find anywhere else, or go enjoy a show from local music acts. Gracia is absolutely perfect for those who want to get away from the stereotypical tourist spots, even if it’s popularity is certainly comparable.

Getting to Gracia

Gracia is roughly a 25-minute drive away from Barcelona’s main airport, so a taxi is a perfectly affordable and convenient option. This can be your fastest route depending on the traffic. Alternatively, you can catch a mix of Aerobus and train, depending on what’s available. This should take anywhere between 45 minutes and an hour. Direct trains are also available and should take roughly the same amount of time.
