$4.95 USD

This is the Gràcia & Park Güell chapter from Lonely Planet’s Barcelona guide-book.

Once a separate village north of L’Eixample, Gràcia retains its distinct character today, with a boho feel – it’s home to artists, hip local luminaries and young families, as well as the wonder-land of Park Güell.

  • meander along the winding paths amid the wild sculptures, mosaics and columns of park Güell, Gaudí’s open-air wonderland high above the city
  • maps
  • admire the strange interplay of brick, chequerboard patterns and Moorish elements on Unesco-listed Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first commission.
  • transport
  • shop for delectable local specialities (and sample them too) at the neighbourhood’s em-blematic market, Mercat de la Llibertat, dating from the 19th century
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
