Buying property in the Gracia district of Barcelona

Gràcia used to be a village outside of Barcelona, but as the city expanded it became one of Barcelona’s central residential districts.

Some points to bear in mind when looking in Gracia for property for sale in Barcelona.

  • Rather like the Old Town Gràcia has a network of narrow streets that makes the area feel cramped. However it also has a high number of attractive squares to compensate.
  • Gràcia has a youthful residential profile and is home to a large number of bars and restaurants that appeal to a younger clientele. The downside is that street noise can be a problem for residents.
  • On balance Gràcia is an agreeable residential area with a good local feel to it and without the petty crime problems common in the Old Town. The streets between Via Augusta and Calle Verdi but below Astúries stand out.
