The neighbourhood of Eixample
Eixample, translated from Catalan as “extension” for being the newest part of the city, is a large area north of Plaça Catalunya to the left and Passeig de Gràcia to the right. It was the ingenious Catalan engineer, Cerdá, that, during the 1850s, planned this extension of the city. Cerdá had a weakness for straight lines, which is why the whole area is arranged on a grid, and each buildings block has an internal patio. As a result, it is tough to get lost in the Eixample. Therefore, effortless to find places.
Today, the Eixample is famous for being home to most of Barcelona’s art nouveau masterpieces. It is a high-class residential area with many shops and some of the best city’s restaurants. It’s a great place to live in, always full of life and things to do.
