This wonderful neighborhood has its own unique flavor and a bohemian ambience you’ll feel in your bones as you explore the historic streets and plazas. Long time neighbors and new residents coexist in harmony here, forming a lively and popular district that truly a joy to explore.
In 1897 Barcelona, in the throes of a large-scale expansion that included the construction of the Eixample district, absorbed the village of Gràcia and connected it to the rest of the city by the famous shopping street Passeig de Gràcia. This formerly independent, autonomous village became one of the city's newest neighborhoods.
The residents of Gràcia have long been known for their particularly open-minded and social nature, which led many artists to also settle here. During our scooter tour you will get an inside look at this vibrant and intimate neighborhood. Our guide will lead you to discover bustling markets, local traditions and the hidden secrets that make Gràcia unlike any of the more touristy neighborhoods of Barcelona.
Along the way, you will also visit important and emblematic landmarks. These include the Casa Vicens, (Gaudí’s first important work for the city) and the historical civil war bunker hidden beneath Plaça de la Revolució de Setembre 1868.
If you’re lucky enough to visit Barcelona in the middle of August, you simply must attend the Festa Major de Gràcia, declared a festival of national interest in Catalonia. This week long event is packed with local tradition – performances by talented Castellers (human towers) and the thrilling Correfocs (fire-runners). During this time, the streets of Gràcia are decorated by its residents and you can find live music in nearly every plaza.
If you enjoy experiencing something out of the ordinary, this is the tour for you!
