Gràcia is an escape from the big city. On weekdays, the neighborhood is quiet, but on the weekends, it comes to life as locals stroll the narrow streets to shop and dine. During the summer, the neighborhood’s plazas fill up with teenagers drinking beer and strumming guitars. On certain holidays, like the famous Festa Major in August or the Hogueras de Sant Antoni in January, people gather in the neighborhood for what can only be described as a giant block party with bonfires.
