TYPICAL APARTMENT

The apartments vary widely in style and size, reflecting the neighborhood's diverse character. You'll find a mix of historic buildings with charming features like exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and mosaic tile floors, as well as more modern apartments with sleek finishes and contemporary design elements. Many apartments in Gràcia offer spacious layouts with plenty of natural light. While some buildings may lack elevators due to their historic nature, the neighborhood's walkable streets and lively ambiance more than make up for it.

WHY CASAMONA LOVES THIS AREA

AREA HIGHLIGHTS

Plaças

When people ask where you live in Gràcia, the most accurate information you can give is your nearest “plaça”. That is because they practically define the area, and act as the social hub of the district. On weekdays they are quiet, with people reading and chatting in the many small cafés. Then during the evenings, they turn into an extension of the bars that surround them, with people talking, drinking and listening to music until the early hours of the morning. They transform again on Sunday mornings, returning to their previous stillness, with quaint cafés and family orientated activities.

Bohemian Hangouts

Due to the non-uniform shapes of the streets. Modernist or more traditional: you can find whatever you want in Gràcia, but it’s worth knowing you should expect to pay less there than in other, more touristic areas. The bohemian lifestyle and culture of this area is all a part of the charm. There are excellent boutique stores, vintage gems, art galleries, bars and markets that all cater to the bohemian and hippy culture. When it comes to food, we recommend you walk around all of the plaças and you will find restaurants with many different types of cuisine.

Park Güell

Park Güell is an enormous garden with stunning and distinct architectural elements designed by the renowned Catalan architect, Antoní Gaudí. It has wonderful views of the city. You can enjoy a fantastic green walk surrounded by modernist works.

Gràcia Festival

The Fiesta de Gràcia is loud, it’s raucous, and it should be treated as a marathon: It goes on all day, every day, for a whole week in mid-August. This street festival features a competition between streets to see who can win the prize of being the best-decorated street. You will be amazed by the canopies of colorful decoration from above and the creativity and originality that each street demonstrates. There is food and rides and activities for children, too.
