This is how holiday rental owners described Barcelona-Gràcia
show more roots, they don't say they come from Barcelona, they say Gràcia.
The area is popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd, it also has a high ethnic population and the highest concentration of foreign restaurants in Barcelona. Plaça de Sol is the most renowned area of the neighbourhood, it's lined with terrace cafes and at night this is where the people convene to drink and be merry. However despite the trendy nature of Gràcia it is also a traditional barrio with a large elderly population which makes for an amusing and odd mix - and entertaining people-watching.
Gràcia is also well-known for it's festival which is held for 5 days in August and sees the locals competing in street decoration (they take it quite seriously). The results are usually spectacular, and at night the festival comes alive with drinks stalls and stages of live music of every variety.
Fontana is the metro stop, and from there you can get into the centre of the city, Plaça Catalunya in less than 10 minutes. Also near the metro stop is a cinema that plays films in their original language (version original).
Gràcia is totally self-sufficient. That is to say you could stay in Gràcia and never have to leave, there are good amenities of every sort, bars, cosy cafes, a real Mediterranean lifestyle. Whilst everything like the buildings, streets and plaças are in much smaller scale than those in the centre of town there is some striking art nouveau architecture to be seen.
Whilst I suppose one could find some of the trendy population quite intimidating (there are a lot of piercing, dreadlocks and tattoos around) the area is quite safe and away from the main squares where people drink outside until the early hours it is also quiet.
The area is perfect for those who want something a little bit different, those who perhaps have been to Barcelona before and want a different tourist experience. Although really because central Barcelona is so easily accessible from Gràcia it is suitable for everyone.
One of the best features of Gràcia is that there are not so many tourists so you feel like you've discovered something a bit new and diverse.
Shopping is also good in Gràcia, where new, arty boutiques stand next to traditional Spanish stores
The "Wild Coast "
Costa Brava | At the Costa Brava beautiful sandy beaches and a great landscape of bizarre rock formations as well as green pine groves await you. Enjoy sun, beach and sea in a mild sun spoilt climate and discover the cultural treasures of this region. The Dali Museum in Figueres, the Sagrada Familia of Gaudi in Barcelona and the medieval town of Girona are some of the unique sights the Costa Brava has to offer. Considering the rugged coast as well as the lively shaped landscape which are overgrown with countless pine forests the coastal landscape in the north-eastern part of Spain is referred to as the “Wild Coast”. One might though think that the name actually is reference to the nightlife of this region: Many coastal resorts give you the chance to turn night into day – with Lloret de Mar leading the way which has a seven kilometre long sandy beach and a vast range of discos, bars and pubs on offer.
If you would prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of the coastal resorts then just a couple of kilometres away from the coast there are cook oak forests waiting for you to discover. In the area of Sant Pere Pescador one is provided with a splendid nature adventure. The nature reserve Aiguamolls de l´Emporda with coastal lagoons, salt marshes and dunes are not only a nesting place for many water birds but also it plays a significant role in fruit growing. Here for example you can enjoy a quad tour through the delightful landscape. Of course the preservation of the nature is paramount. Regardless whether you just are briefly staying in the Costa Brava region or planning a longer vacation you must take time to visit the rocky bays at Begur and Palafrugell which gave this region its name. atraveo has more than 3,800 holiday apartments and houses on offer around the “Wild Coast”. According to the reviews of customers the most popular destinations for a holiday home vacation are Empuriabrava, l'Escala, l'Estartit, Llanca, Playa de Pals and Roses. Further information on Spain and the Costa Brava can be found in the respective holiday home selection.
