Top ways to experience Passeig de Gracia
The area
Neighborhood: 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.

    Simply stunning
    It is clear to see why this hotel is so in demand. The service is impeccable, the property and its wide array of amenities are stunning, and the rooms are an oasis. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a beautiful suite on the top floor overlooking the city. What more can you ask for?…Just time…we wished we had booked more time here.

    Interesting Walk
    This was a beautiful place to stroll in Barcelona. It is steeped in the history of the region, with stunning architecture dating back centuries. One thing our guide advised us about was where to make purchases. According to her, there’s a “locals” price and a “tourist” price for the same item. While on vacation I expect to pay, but I think it’s disingenuous to have a 400% markup on beverages like coffee.

    Stay away from the crowds and explore off the beaten path.
    If you want to be away from the main tourist areas and crows, stay in Gracia. It is north of the city center, and if you like to walk, this is how we got most places. Park Guell is there in addition to many stores, tapas, wine bars, and pizzas. The busses take you right downtown, and the hop-on hop-off bus goes right through it. We loved it.

    Wonderful street for shopping and architecture
    This is a long and wonderful street. Lot's of shops including high end ones. Architectural highlights of the city such as Gaudi's casa ballo and la pedrera can also be found here.

    Shopping and sightseeing location
    There are so many places to shop and eat here. The Casa Batillo and Casa Mila are here on the Passeig. Come to shop for all the luxury goods and see the sights. Bring a luggage with you to place your bags into though… and take a taxi back to your hotel if you shop… although relatively safe, be aware of your surroundings at all times.

The street simply has all the best shops in Barcelona, everything from Zara to Burberry and the really high-end stuff. Even if you don’t want to go in some of the high-end potentially intimidating stores it’s a really nice place to just wander up and down. We booked a hotel on this street which was just the perfect location to go out and about in Barcelona. You can also find some of Gaudi’s famous work on this street and apparently the most expensive real estate in all of Spain

Floating on fanciful wings, we went in search for yet another series of Gaudi’s ethereal architectural delights along the Passeig de Gracia, except these were homes not churches. Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona’s Grand Avenue has the highest concentration of Art Nouveau and Modernist architecture in Europe. These unique designs let you know instantly that you have become part of a playful, if surreal new world.
I noticed there were a lot of tempting shops along this wide boulevard but we were on a mission so, no time for shopping!

Besides the famous “Block of Discord” with the Gaudi building, many of these buildings from the same period were often fanciful and over-the-top. If you chose to look above the street level shops, the buildings gave you a picture of a time at the turn of the 19th century when this area must have been THE place to live. I loved strolling this section of the city.

At first sight, this may seem like just another posh shopping area with all the usual suspects of high end designers (Louis Vuitton, Montblanc, etc.).

If you look up, you will notice that these establishments are housed in precious modernista buildings. And most of the buildings have the name of the architect, an important reminder that Gaudi was not the only game in town.

While here, visit the Gaudi buildings. They are truly magnificent!

We rode the local bus to Park Guell and then walked the Passeig de Gracia back down to Plaza Catalunya. I felt like I was walking a Parisian neighborhood onto the Boulevard Haussmann. Loved it!
