Strolling around Gràcia

Gràcia is not a touristy section of Barcelona. Nevertheless, it's certainly worth the visit if you enjoy strolling around quaint streets and want to escape the "big city" feel for a small town, alternative vibe.

The Plaça de Rius i Taulet, Plaça Revolució, Plaça del Diamant and Plaça de la Virreina are vibrant centers of activity and good places to look for outdoor food and drink. But the most popular is The Plaça del Sol (you can see the photo) at the center of the quarter. In this square you can find a great concentration of bars (and people) and gets really lively at the weekends. 

One of the most famous is The Mond Bar. This tiny, trendy bar is a magnet for mellow barflies who come to mingle, smoke and listen to DJ-spun tunes, including techno, pop, soul and 1970s classics.

MOND BAR. Plaça del Sol, 21
Open: from 20.30h to 3h

Great advice, because ne of the "off" things about a great city like Barcelona, is how full of turists it can get, and that can be problematic sometimes... and It's nice to know about other areas of the city that are not that crowded.
