We had a great tapas lunch. Everything was very tasty, the wine was excellent, the service fast and the owner super friendly and funny. Great! A little bit more expensive than other places around, but for a reason! :)

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th

boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
