The Passeig de Gràcia is one of the main avenues in Barcelona. It has a great turistic, commercial and business importance. Casa Milà and Casa Battló are the most representative monuments in the area.
Paseo de Gracia is one of the most famous streets of the city of Barcelona and one of its main tourist attractions. It is located in the heart of Barcelona, specifically, in the district of l'Eixample; its route begins in Plaza Catalunya, another essential place to visit in the city, and ends in the Gardens of Salvador Espriu. If you want to park in Paseo de Gracia, you must take into account that being located in the center of Barcelona, it is usually very busy both by residents of the city and by people traveling for leisure or work.
In Paseo de Gracia you will find many shops of luxurious brands and, on the other hand, many works of art of the famous architect Antoni Gaudí such as La Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. So if you are visiting Barcelona, you should not miss the opportunity to pass by this long avenue that connects with different points of tourist interest and leisure.
Paseo de Gracia is a very busy place and does not give the possibility to park the car on the street, so you will have to go into the side streets of the avenue to find parking.
The most important thing is that before parking, verify that it is possible to do so, as in some streets it is forbidden. On the streets where parking is allowed you will know when the streets are marked with green, blue or white lines. The green and blue zones are paid and the white zones are free.
We strongly advise you to book a parking space to ensure availability. To find parking, compare and book easily, do it through Parkimeter. You can do this directly on the website or by downloading the app to make it easier for you to find parking in the future.
To park safely on Paseo de Gracia, we suggest some options such as NN Valencia 2 - Passeig de Gràcia, SABA BAMSA Passeig de Gràcia - Consell de Cent or SABA BAMSA - Jardinets de Gràcia.
In this street you will have the opportunity to enter the most luxurious fashion stores such as Dior, Chanel, Moncler, Versace, Hermès, Rolex and many others... On the other hand, if you want to shop with more "reasonable" expenses, you can do it in chains like Zara, Mango or H&M, which have huge stores in the same avenue.
Strolling down this street, you can contemplate the beautiful buildings of modernist architecture, as well as the works of important artists of the time such as Gaudí, Puig i Cadafalch, or Domenech i Montaner. This avenue is undoubtedly a must for tourists.
The Casa Mila, better known as La Pedrera, was built between 1906 and 1912 and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984. It has been open to the public since 1987 and receives around one million visitors a year, making it one of the most visited buildings in Barcelona. From its terrace you can even see the Sagrada Familia.
Casa Batlló was built between 1904 and 1906. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005. One of the most fascinating things about this house is its unique pastel-colored mosaic facade.
We highly recommend you to visit these two buildings, they are worth it!
Casa Amatller is one of the best examples of Catalan modernism. It was built between 1898 and 1900 commissioned by the famous chocolatier Antoni Amatller. You can visit his museum from Tuesday to Sunday, the visit lasts 45 minutes and you can do it with an audio guide available in Catalan, Spanish, English and French.
The Casa Lleó Morera is part of the so-called "Island of Discord" (the three buildings designed by Catalan modernist architects of the twentieth century). You can admire its exterior, but unfortunately you cannot visit the interior. If you want to see the interior, you can go online, there are videos available.
