The Area of Eixample – Quadrat d’Or
Barcelona entered the modern era with the urbanization of the Eixample (Ensanche). In the middle of the 19th century the city demolished its medieval walls to grow and become a different place. Today, with a simple look at the map you can see an endless number of symmetrical and straight streets – those are the famous streets of Eixample.
The central part of Eixample is the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square) – a set of blocks located around the Paseo de Gracia boulevard, between Aribau and Paseo de Sant Joan, Gran Vía and Diagonal streets. This was the main artery of that new Eixample that was born after 1860. Following the Cerdà plan, the neighborhood was built with the money of the wealthy families of Barcelona. The bourgeois of the city competed in aesthetic refinement with the construction of their houses in modernist buildings, interiors and facades decorated with the most diverse materials, from ceramics to crystals.
Nowadays Eixample is considered to be one of the best residential areas of the city with plenty of things to do: numerous international and local shops and boutiques, shopping centers, some of the best city´s restaurants and bars, city´s sights. It´s a great place to live in and to discover!
