Another Gaudi house, this was one of my favorites because of the woodwork inside. Was also nice and cool from the outside heat. It borders on one of the sketchier parts of town so watch your belongings on the walk there.

wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy

I would recommend that you take the line L3(green line) and stop at station Fontana. It's the best way to go to Gracia.!
