How to celebrate Fiesta de Gràcia in Barcelona
Every summer, residents of the bohemian Gracia district put aside all the things to prepare their street for fiesta.

The street can be decorated in different ways: wild West, cabaret, Star Wars. The scenery is mostly household rubbish - plastic bottles, spare parts, kitchen utensils and so on.

A must-have attribute on each street is the bar, where you can buy beer or sangria for a reasonable price. They work until the morning. Pop into here with the onset of darkness and you will see how the unrestrained fun of Gracia Holiday "is gaining momentum."

How to do?

1. Walk through each street in the Gracia area, and pop into the bars.
