Barcelona - Gracia & Park Guell (PDF Chapter)
This is the Gràcia & Park Güell chapter from Lonely Planet’s Barcelona guidebook.
Once a separate village north of L’Eixample, Gràcia retains its distinct character today – a boho feel that varies between chic and downtrodden. Here you’ll find Park Güell, well-worn cafes and bars, vintage shops and a smattering of multicultural eateries.
- get lost along the winding paths of Park Güell, exploring the wild sculptures, mosaics and columns of Gaudí’s verdant wonderland
- admire the strange interplay of brick, chequerboard patterns and Moorish elements of Casa Vicens castle mansion, Gaudí’s first commission
- get high on chocolate in la Nena, while playing a few board games and nibbling on crêpes
- restaurants & bars
