The building is located on one of the first streets of the Eixample district that was built when the medieval walls of the ancient city were demolished. This is a reason why nowadays this street serves as a border between the almost idyllic Eixample planned by the famous Cerdà and the motley, dense and chaotic urban plot of the old town.
The Eixample district of Barcelona
The neighborhood of Eixample (or Ensanche) was designed by the engineer Ildefons Cerdà, whose urban plan was approved 150 years ago, in 1859. The new city planning known as the Plan Cerdà allowed to demolish at last the medieval walls that delimited the urban nucleus, already saturated and too small for the large population of the city which increased fundamentally after the massive migration from the countryside to the city as a result of the Industrial Revolution.
Nowadays Eixample is the city´s largest residential neighborhood that enjoys all the possible amenities and great transportation links; there are several metro, train and bus lanes in the area that connect it with the rest of the city. Eixample is also a home to some of Barcelona´s best restaurants, bars, clubs etc. Here you will never run out of things to do and to see!
