We stayed in a hotel in this area right near La Rambla so great for access to Park Guell, La Sagrada and upmarket shopping but a good 30 minute walk away from the beach area.

Great area to stay. Allows for history and architecture, food and nightlife but a little bit less crowded than other areas.

I would not go out of my way to visit this. There is some interesting architecture but not worth a visit on its own.

We stayed on Carrer Paris for a week in an apartment and loved the closeness of restaurants, cafes, bakeries and supermarkets. Great streetscape, very safe and would stay here again.

translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
