ABSTRACT
This article reflects upon Barcelona's social and territorial identities. The concept of "identity" is presented in the introduction and discussed from a geographical perspective. The second part focuses on the various identities of the city of Barcelona and of its districts. Finally, the third part of the article discusses the case of the Gràcia district - a particularly interesting example of a district with a strong specific identity in the context of a metropolis.
