The tour is suitable for those who already know and explore the city. Barcelona Eixample district counts the geographical and architectural heart of Barcelona. The district lies in the elegant Passeig de Gràcia .

The Greenwich Village of Barcelona, it's where the elite meet to have a coffee at one of the many sidewalk cafes when they take a pause while walking their designer pooch. Some traditional shops remain, but trendy bars and tapas restaurants are taking over along with 24 hour convenience stores.

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.

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
