Barcelona - Gracia & Park Guell (Chapter)
This is the Gràcia & Park Güell chapter from Lonely Planet’s Barcelona guidebook.
Gràcia’s narrow lanes and picturesque plazas have a villagelike feel, but it has long been a magnet to a young, hip, largely international crowd. On a hill to the north lies the outdoor Modernista storybook of Park Güell, yet another captivating work by Gaudí.
- check out the swirling patterns of the facade of Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first commission
- wander around and take in the sun on one of Gràcia’s many squares
- wander up Carrer de Verdi for an insight into what Gràcia does best: local boutiques and food shops abound on this tree-lined street
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Gay & Lesbian, Entertainment, Sleeping, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
