GRÁCIA, THE MEANING OF SQUARES – FREE TOUR
A relaxed walk for this Gracia neighbourhood tour. Discover one of Barcelona’s hidden gems.
Come and wander with us through the charming neighbourhood of Gracia.

Yet, on our Gracia neighbourhood tour you’ll not only see the bio markets, great bars offering live music but also see a lesser known picture of revolutions, insurrections, the birthplace of the local music style: Rumba Catalana and also the monk who could be in two places at once. A wonderful way to get to explore a lesser known area of the city and authentic local Catalan culture.
