Starting from Cataluna square, this boulevard makes for an interesting walk on many levels. Zara has a gorgeous home store, and the clothing store is quite large. Across the street is a really interesting arcade of individual shops. Further up the shops become 'designer' but worth lookin at , from the street preferably. There are two Gaudi buildings on either... More

Our anniversary visit was headquartered in a lovely apartment one block from the Plaza Catalunya. Passeig de Gracia cuts through the handsome Eixample area including the wonderful Casa Batlo and la Pedrera, two Gaudi marvels. A number of fine restaurants are located on or just off this major thoroughfare; our favorite was Petit Comite where we celebrated with an anniversary... More

This is likely the most glorious and glamorous street of modern Barcelona. Although Gaudi's historic masterpiece Casa Batllo is right in the middle however the street is dominated by all the modern big brands of fashion and food industry. You name it. Pick a sunny late morning to walk through the passeig to enjoy the people watching and be watched.

A beautiful road with walkways, just watch out for the changes in Tarmac/pavements because there are roads running by the pedestrian area. Don't get hit! It's very nice at night, when it's dark, to window-shop looking in all the designer shops plus the lit up Gaudi apartments are gorgeous. Busy by day with lots of cafes and the people-watching is...

The best way to describe Passeig de Gracia is-it's a combination of Park Avenue and Madison Avenue. Gaudi's La Pedrera and Casa Bastllo are highlights of this street but there is incredible architecture from beginning to end. High-end shopping and wide sidewalks make this the perfect place for an afternoon stroll.

This street has a collection of Gaudi and Gaudi inspired buildings. One in particular, Casa Bastello is amazing. It looks like a ginger bread house from the outside and once again is a credit to the Gaudi design and the actual artisans that built it.

This is a really great place full of history and architecture. There are many nice shops and restaurant. An easy stroll around here and make sure to look up at the buildings as they are just magnificant. It is one of the major avenues in Barcelona. There is not a lot more one can say about it. Make sure you... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
