Gracia is one of the 10 neighbourhoods that compose the magnificent Barcelona, specifically the smallest of them. Despite its size, Gracia is one of the most attractive neighbourhoods in the city. It needs to be said that not all neighbourhoods preserve for so long time their unique personality and awesome display of culture.
Gracia has the architecture and the environment of a small city but in the heart of the metropolis. Its streets, its squares give this neighbourhood its own identity that is transmitted.
The location is key in the life of a freelancer or an enterprise, therefore, it is very important to know what this neighbourhood can contribute to your business that you won’t find in other places.
Public transport one of its great advantages
Firstable public transport. Gracia is a neighbourhood with many access facilities. You will find Bus stops, metro and train stations throughout the Vila, also Bicing stations and bicycle parking places are common and other interesting alternatives like Avancar. Besides, most of the streets of the neighbourhood are a pedestrian priority, so going from one place to another one by walk or skate is nice and easy. When you decide about a coworking, it is important to prioritize that has good access -as well as to make it easier for clients-.
Its multiculturalism and culture
Gracia is a multicultural neighbourhood, an aspect that enriches those of us who work here.

Creativity is expanding constantly. A neighbourhood full of cinemas, theatres, cultural centres, galleries, and local shops that give each area of the city a very attractive image.
Its magnificent spaces
