Gràcia • time to momo


" In Gràcia the crowded city feels miles away. This neighborhood with a small-town vibe is also popular with artists and Bohemians. "

Annebeth Vis, our local from time to momo Barcelona

With the construction of residential neighborhood L’Eixample in the 19th century, the independent village of Gràcia was annexed by Barcelona. To this day, the neighborhood retains its welcoming, small-town vibe, unspoiled by large groups of tourists, in part due to the lack of major attractions. On its outskirts lies the famous Parc Güell, but most visitors skip the rest. It's a pity, because this area is full of small, independent boutiques, bustling squares, and cozy cafés. Once a year, for one week in August, Gràcia becomes the focal point of the entire city, during a neighborhood festival famous for being the best party in Barcelona.
