It has been proven that Barcelona is a city with higher rental prices. However, there is great inequality between different districts.
These differences are mainly based on the relationship between supply and demand. There are very expensive neighbourhoods, as is the case of Sarriá-Sant Gervasi, although we are seeing a drop in prices now. Among the most affordable is the neighbourhood of Gracia.
Why choose the neighbourhood of Gracia?
It is a central area, with great beauty and architectural aesthetics as well as excellent communication with the rest of the city.
It is an ideal place to live in and explore the charm of modernist architecture in Barcelona. Two well-known examples are La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. The history of Paseo de Gracia is also associated with Gaudí art.
In terms of communication, this central district is fully accessible to all its surroundings. The subway makes it possible to reach any part of the city within minutes. In addition, there are trains with close links to the centre as well as the main airport or the more distant ones, Sitges and Girona.
Being a very central neighbourhood, it is not difficult to walk from Gracia to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas.
A neighbourhood with character and culture
Some of the characteristics of the Gracia district are its cosmopolitan, bohemian, and above all, charismatic traits. The locals include the most traditional neighbours including, gypsies, bohemian artists, and the international exchange students. The diversity between people, and the mixture of cultures, characterise the neighbourhood of Gracia.
Creativity and culture breathe in every corner of Gracia. The shops combine tradition and modernity together with yesterday's and today's art.
A unique character
The old town of Gracia was formed by the lands that make up the district today. It was an independent district from 1856 to 1897. The highest part of the district has a mainly rural origin. Gracia is comprised of Vallcarca, el Coll, la Salut, and el Camp d’en Grassot-Gràcia Nova.
Among the old farmhouses that have been preserved, you will find Can Tusquets, a convent, and Can Xipreret, a tennis club.
