After a week of exploring Barcelona, I decided to visit Gràcia neighborhood again. I more like, decided to spend a full day in Gràcia. This neighborhood was established in 1626, with a convent under the name “Our lady of Grace / Nostra Senyora de Gràcia”.Gràcia, and was independent of Barcelona until 1897. Gràcia is a neighborhood full of life. Differs from the rest of the neighborhoods for not crossing the street of La Rambla, nor is it connected to the center, but is a little ride up a hill. Gràcia is famous for its squares “Carrer”. You will find many squares, I think famous for 5 public squares. Squares of Gràcia are known to live the day and night. They are usually filled with outdoor tables, live bands, and laughers. If you decide to spend the day there, then make sure you walk and look for the art that resides in it.
Barcelona is known for its friendly people and comfortable atmosphere. You will also feel very much welcomed in Gràcia. Make sure you find the popular Carrer Verdi and explore the shops there. I was very lucky to stumble upon a Palestinian cuisine restaurant that will meet your fantasy. Great food, interior design and hostess. You do not want to miss it. Have incredible Tiramisu and coffee at Nabucco.Unforgettable sushi at Kibuka.Best of all, are all the colored walls you will come across.
A very unpredictable neighborhood and a very predictable love affair. Find very cozy cafe’s. Have a romantic dinner. Go for a door hunt.
