The area of Eixample
While the Old Town of Barcelona – Ciutat Vella – consists of narrow curved streets, Eixample enjoys a perfect square design, with wide streets and blocks of flats that are exactly the same in size. Many of the buildings in Eixample have the famous Catalan modernist style, and it is the place where the highest concentration of modernist buildings is located.
Eixample is full of very interesting places to visit. Here we can find the famous temple of Sagrada Familia, which construction never seems to e ending, although it has now been announced that the plan is to finish it by 2026, 100 years after the death of its designer Antoni Gaudí. In Eixample you will also find Casa Batllo and La Pedrera, or the Arc de Triomf, the equivalent of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
Eixample is ideal if you enjoy good gastronomy. It has a variety of good and famous restaurants, ranging from those with a Michelin star such as “Els Cinc Sentits”, to small typical Catalan bars such as “La Bodegueta” and restaurants of more oriental origin such as the “Mayura Lounge” with indian food and “Los Jardines de Thailand ” with Thai.
