We found in on the way from Sagrada Familia to Passeign de Graciaand casa Pedrero. Strange, it's not Gaudi's work, as it looks absolutely his! Anyway, colourful splendid house with no sharp lines ans generously decorated- it forces everyone to stop. Sad we didn't dare to come inside...

My favorite building in Barcelona, it's absolutely fabulous, but the doorman/guard is very rude. I tried to have a look at the incredible vestibule, but the doorman immediately kicked me out in a very rude way : I entered and politely asked him if I could just take a quick picture of the entrance, he said no and then closed...

Another modernist house on Avinguda Diagonal, this one was designed by the architect Salvador Valeri i Pupurull in 1906. He was obviously influenced by Gaudi’s work, which is greatly visible in the curves which are comprised on both facades (one facing the Avinguda Diagonal and the other facing Carrer de Corsega) of the building. It is a real hidden jewel... More

You won’t find crowds around this one, but it is just as lovely as Casa Battlo. It is on the corner of the street, perfectly hidden away from a major road. Gorgeous balconies, lovely windows and the colors, the colors! Very much worth a short side trip to check it out.

On seeing of this colorful building I followed directions and sped down the Diagonal to find it - only to be confronted with this dull, anaemic, achromatic building... I'm thinking - perhaps they stripped the paint to restore it or something?? Anyway fast forward I'm walking down Carrer Còrsega and I'm blinded by this incredibly bizarre  psychedelic building! It looked... More

Would not go out of your path to see it but if you are in the area it is worth to take a look. The front facade is intriguing and highly elaborated following the modernist style. The back facade is just as interesting with an emphasis on colors. Could take a quick look at the entrance hall while chatting with... More

We saw the Casa Comalat while driving along the Avinguda Diagonal. The building is a beautiful piece of arcitecture which looks even more beautiful because of the coloured and intricately designed facade walls. Unfortunately we did not go in and see the building in detail, but the facade was worth the stop.

At the bottom of Gràcia between the Diagonal and Carrer Còrsega, this often overlooked Moderniste house built in 1911 is a must see in a visit to Barcelona. The reason such an outstanding piece of architecture is not on everyone's priority list is probably because it is not open to the public, contrary to what happens to the nearby La... More

Casa Comalat is a gorgeous building. You can definitely see the influences of Gaudi but with a twist. If you can get inside the lobby, it's worth a peak at the ceramic work and beautifully painted walls and celings. I hear they're putting a little hotel in on the first floor. I can't wait to stay there!

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia
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.
