Getting to know the area from your vacation rental in El Guinardo
El Guinardo is home to many families, who are attracted by the quiet atmosphere and many parks in the area. If you are looking for a vacation rental in Barcelona that provides a calm refuge from the bustle of the city, then El Guinardo could be for you. It is not a place for nightlife or shopping, even although it does have a few bars and boutiques. On the other hand, it is well connected to the city centre by the Metro and the well-known shopping area of Gracia is just next door. The most famous of the area’s parks is Park del Laberint, which dates from the 18th century. Here you will find a maze carved out of the naturally growing bushes of the park.
