What your guests will love about your neighborhood

The area is popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd, it also has a high ethnic population and the highest concentration of foreign restaurants in Barcelona. Plaça de Sol is the most renowned area of the neighbourhood, it's lined with terrace cafes and at night this is where the people convene to drink and be merry. However despite the trendy nature of Gràcia it is also a traditional barrio with a large elderly population which makes for an amusing and odd mix - and entertaining people-watching.

The neighbourhood of Gràcia is just one stop up from the top of Passeig de Gràcia but it feels like a whole different world. Gràcia was an independent town until the late 19th century and even now the community is small and tight. The people are exceedingly proud of their roots, they don't say they come from Barcelona, they say Gràcia.

Gràcia is also well-known for it's festival which is held for 5 days in August and sees the locals competing in street decoration (they take it quite seriously). The results are usually spectacular, and at night the festival comes alive with drinks stalls and stages of live music of every variety. Fontana is the metro stop, and from there you can get into the centre of the city, Plaça Catalunya in less than 10 minutes. Also near the metro stop is a cinema that plays films in their original language (version original).
