This neighborhood has a decent amount of places to work outside the house.

Gràcia is a charming area known for its many plazas (perfect for grabbing a caña or a vermut), like Plaça del Sol, Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia, and if your legs feel up to tackling the hill, Plaça Lesseps. The neighborhood was a separate town until Barcelona annexed it in 1897—Passeig de Gràcia was built to connect the new barrio to the rest of the city—and it still has its own unique charm. The population is an interesting mix of older Catalan folks and internationals from all over the world. 

Walk up Verdi to visit the cute clothing stores and bars that line the pedestrian street, and make sure to check out Casa Vicens, the very first house that architect Antonio Gaudi designed and built. In August, the Fiestas de Gràcia take over the barrio for five days: residents decorate their streets in different themes, and the whole city comes to celebrate and see the fantastical creations and hear different bands play. Gràcia has fantastic coworking options, from coworking spaces like  Betahaus and Garden Coworking to its many coffee shops, including Sandwichez (Bruniquer), gallery/bookstore/café Mecanic, Eat My Trip, Las Ikas, and Sabio Infante
