Car-free streets for more local commerce in Gràcia

In a move to support local shops and restaurants, various streets in Gràcia are to be closed to traffic during the days in the run-up to Twelfth Night. Restricting traffic during shop opening times provides a boost for local commerce, helping to reactivate the neighbourhood. La Vila de Gràcia is the neighbourhood with the second largest concentration of commerce in the city.
