Gracia has a different personality to other neighbourhoods in Barcelona. The configuration of the neighbourhood itself full of pedestrian streets and its buildings makes the people living in Gracia special. Come and discover its charm! We will walk through the most characteristic Gracia neighbourhood streets and discover some of its hidden gems. We will start the tour in the first building that was the origin of this neighbourhood and gives its name to it (Iglesia dels Josepets de Gracia). We will follow Gran de Gracia street, full of shops and one of its main arteries and we will have a look at one of the first Gaudi's works (and very unknown): Casa Vicens. After I will show you a street full of eco-friendly and original stores as carrer Asturies and we will be in Plaça del Diamant, a famous square also for a book of the same name. We will also visit a little local market, were you can see and buy typical gastronomic products and see the differences with your gastronomy. We will have a drink in a terrace and enjoy the good weather of Barcelona. All and all you will know more about the history of Barcelona and discover new and excitings things of the city! See you!
I am Laura, I was born and have been living in Barcelona and in the Gracia neighbourhood, all my life. In my professional career I am a marketing professional basically working in the automotive and Real Estate sector. I love to travel, and when I do, I like to feel like if I was living in that city: I like to meander in little streets and take a coffee in some little lost café. And that is what my experience is about: make you feel as another Barcelona citizen! I am also a host at airbnb so you can check my airbnb plus apartment in Barcelona!! www.airbnb.com/rooms/16377944 See you soon!
