LOVELY AREA TO WALK AROUND AND EXPLORE

We enjoy exploring this district especially with the buildings and off streets, again it does not matter if you get lost in the day time as you are on holiday.

We came for an evening and strolled around L'Eixample. A lot of interesting buildings, the majority well maintained. Don't forget to check one of the around 100 inner yards (patios) which are accessible for visitors.

The Gothic District is the soul of Barcelona, but the Gaudi buildings are worth the visit to L'Eixample. Sagrada Familia is extraordinary and a must see. Make sure you go inside. The other two Gaudi buildings on Passeig de Gracia are also worth a visit. The roads in L'Eixample are wide and open. Passeig de Gracia also has Prada-esque stores,... More

This district is easy to reach by the Metro. Have a guide map handy. The attraction is the varying architecture especially by the the eccentric Gaudi. Again this was in 2014

With its attractions, narrow lanes, enthusiastic crowds, cafes, shopping areas and unique ambience, L'Eixample is classic, vintage Barcelona!

On a recent stay in Barcelona I chose the L'Eixample District for a pre-cruise get away. Our hotel, The Alma made for the perfect location. There are so many things to see and do in this area. plenty of shopping, great restaurants. The Gaudi influence is everywhere.

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.
