Barcelona - Barcelona Сity Сentre -
Designed during the 19th century by one of Barcelona's most well-known urban planners and built with the work of famous architects and artists (such as Antoni Gaudi), the Eixample district is one of the most iconic areas of Barcelona. Street blocks in Eixample are built following a grid pattern that has become one of Barcelona's trademarks and which make the city easy to navigate, even for first-time visitors.
The district is often divided into two areas (right and left Eixample), each with its distinct character: while the right side of Eixample is known for its residential flair and exquisitely appointed properties, the left side offers endless shopping and entertainment opportunities and its residential real estate tends to be more affordable. The Eixample is also where some of the city's top landmarks are here, including Sagrada Familia, the Auditorium, La Pedrera, and Casa Mila.
Beyond shopping and leisure, the Eixample offers everything in the way of modern conveniences catering to both residents and tourists. And like most of Barcelona, this district is bustling with street life, but at the same time is dotted with quiet corners where time seems to have stood still and where one can soak into the city's eclectic and alluring atmosphere.
