While all the other areas in Barcelona are special, Gracia is one zone with an exceptional ambiance and this explains why tourists throng the neighborhood every other time. The classy bars, first-rate malls and alluring architecture are all things tourists love to sample. Consider booking accommodation at Vacation Rental Gracia 2 if you want to have a good feel of the area.

Narrow streets, a lively atmosphere and a historic charm are some of the things that characterize Barcelona’s Gotico neighborhood. Gotico is where the city began; therefore most of its architecture is medieval. It also has great hotels including Hotel Gotico, which is a favorite for many visitors.

Eixample was set up as an extension of the city, thus it has some of the oldest buildings. Even so, Eixample is a very secure neighborhood, with large avenues and grid lined streets. If you are travelling to this region with a large group, you can be confident of luxury and comfort at the rental apartments in Vacation Rental Whotells Eixample.

    It’s also nice to know that you can get back and forth between these neighborhoods pretty easily since they are close together, and the metro takes care of the rest. I used a day pass on the metro to make it easier to see several Gaudi locations in a day.
