The square in the famous quarter Gracia is sporting a big tower with a clock on top. Arround the square are cafes and restaurants. The place is very vivid, with, for instance, kids, locals and tourist, playing football.
This square in Gràcia has a great easy going family vibe. Late in the evening, there are still strollers parked next to people having dinner. Younger kids roam freely and politely :-)
There are several restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating around the square but...More

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
