Gràcia used to be a village outside of Barcelona, but as the city expanded it became one of Barcelona’s central residential districts.
Key points to make about Gracia and its property market
- 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.
