We walked back from the outskirts of Barcelona through eixample district back to las ramblas. This was worth venturing to, and visiting the shops, markets along the way.

We visited this area the last day of our vacations. We wanted to visit a traditional neighbour without many tourists, so we visited it. Our choice was very good, we walked in the area and finally we enjoyed a well-tasted sagria in placa del sol.

First, I found one gallery. There I found a map for modern art galleries in Barcelona. The density was the highest in Eixample.

This was a very fun place to stay and shop. Lots of little places to grab a bit and just sit and people watch.

I stayed in this part of Barcelona for a week and preferred it to Bari Gottico. The architecture of the buildings is very beautiful. This was the area that Gaudi worked and lived in. It's a great area to stay if you don't want to be in the busy and tourist-overrun Bari Gottico. It's very upscale with the main shopping... More

Both myself and my partner have visited Barcelona many many times but on this occasion we stayed in a new district. For the first time ever I genuinely felt that I had found somewhere that we would happily move our family to, and set up home in the Dreta L'Eixample district of Barcelona. This district is beautiful and classically designed... More

The Passeig de Gracia had a Champs Elleyse feel to it. And the shops had a similar over-the-top nature. An entirely planned neighbourhood I felt safe strolling the streets at night and was supper impressed by the drivers respect for pedestrian rights

This neighbourhood was a non-stop feast for architecture buffs. Much of it is so interesting and gorgeous. It really gives you a sense of the value that was placed on beauty for beauty's sake in the period that many of the structures were built; when form was as important as function. There are also quite a few really good restaurants.... More
