Seasonal FLOWERS, LOCAL FLORIST

BARCELONA

Once a separate village of low-rise housing on narrow, cobbled laneways, Gracia has its own distinct charm within the wider sprawl of Barcelona. In a truly international city, there’s still a residential character to these streets and squares, where old-timers mingle with the new wave of artists and artisans who’ve been moving in lately. On this walking tour of the neighbourhood you’ll get a feel for what has and hasn’t changed, as we stop at friendly local florists and bakeries, workshops for leatherware and textiles, purveyors of the finest Spanish cheeses and olive oils. From hip young fashion designers to elder bodega owners, you’ll find that certain values are common across the community: passionate specialisation, pride in craftsmanship, and the personal touch so often missing from today’s retail and service industries.
