Gràcia in 5 minutes

Discover the Gràcia neighbourhood in 5 minutes.

We want to show you Barcelona neighbourhood by neighbourhood, so we sent Asier Suescun to speak with some of its residents. Local people and expats that live in the neighbourhood offer you advice and reasons to come get to know and stay here: http://www.barcelonacheckin.com/en/n/…

Gràcia is a residential district with lots of energy, as well as a young and multicultural ambiance. The neighbourhood was once an independent village but became a district in 1897. In 1870, the Revolt of the Quintes took place as the Government came to recruit young people from poor families to send them to war with Cuba, but the neighbours resisted.

The video also includes iconic locations like Park Güell and a custom-made map to help you understand how to get to the most important parts of the city.
