Why you should live in Gracia

Why you should live in Gracia

ABOUT THIS AREA

Gràcia is home to one of Barcelona’s most famous tourism destinations: Park Güell. However, more important to the culture of Gracia are the relaxed plaças, the variety of charming cafés and restaurants, and the characteristic narrow streets into which they are all located. It is considered to be one of the most bohemian areas of Barcelona, with regular musical and artistic events.

The residents of Gràcia are bonded not so much by age or wealth as they are by a shared lifestyle. The area is popular with students, and yet is equally full of young families and friendly groups of retirees. What they have in common tends to be a love of the area and its artistic interest. At night, the plaças and their bars fill up to create a lively atmosphere, as well as a sense of community.

TYPICAL APARTMENT

The apartments we offer are in a mixture of old and modern buildings. All the apartments in the new buildings will have an elevator. In the old town district, you can find small houses with great architectural value. There are also modern apartments located in enclosed communities equipped with private security systems and some other luxuries such as swimming pools and gyms. 

 

WHY CASAMONA LOVES THIS AREA

When we asked our tourist guides, this was the most highly recommended destination for long-term rent/sale. It is away from mass tourism and still keeps the charm of Catalan culture with a variety of plazas dotted around. It still maintains a lively atmosphere, for example, it hosts the oldest festival in Barcelona once a year.

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.
