Gràcia is the smallest district of Barcelona, ​​with an area of ​​4.19 km², but is the second most densely populated. Years ago Gràcia was an independent town of Barcelona until it was added to Barcelona in 1897. So, Gràcia maintains the character of an independent municipality although being part of Barcelona since a hundred years ago.

Few districts of Barcelona are surrounded with so much symbolism as Gràcia. The core of the neighbourhood, Vila de Gràcia, has about 50,000 inhabitants and is characterized by small streets with lots of movement and life on the street. It is the third quarter in Barcelona city and has a great number of facilities and services, mostly cultural.

It is a very central district with easy access and with many advantages for tourists and residents. In the last years, citizens have gained public space with the disappearance of traffic in much of its streets and has boosted public transport and cycling. The district is divided into different neighbourhoods: Vila de Gràcia, Camp d'en Grassot, Gràcia Nova, La Salut, El Coll, Vallcarca - Penitents. Moreover, Gràcia is bordered by Eixample district in the south, Sarrià - Sant Gervasi to the west and Horta - Guinardó in the east.
