The Gràcia district is located in the North West of Barcelona, when you go to the mountains. It is the most typical neighbourhood of Barcelona, as it was still an independent town until the 19th century. Its small streets with its typical tapas bar and shops will convince you. Every year, a neighbourhood party is organized: Festa Major. Victim of its success, tourists are welcomed, as long as they can behave and can stay in our Barcelona aparthotel in Gràcia to enjoy this classic event.
The season of the Festa Major is going on in the Catalonian capital and we thought we could present you the Castellers, a tradition in the region. “Castells” in Catalonian means castles, the Castellers are then people building a tower, more precisely a human tower. You can see these impressive shows during the Festa Major de Gracia. Stay in our familial aparthotel in Gracia.
