The Neighbourhood of Eixample
Eixample, which means 'the extension' in Catalan, is the upper part of Barcelona city center that is very different from its lower part - Ciutat Vella. While Ciutat Vella is filled with small, curvy and narrow streets, Eixample is a perfect grid of large boulevards and impressive building blocks of the exact same size. This means that it's here where we find modern spacious apartments. Many of the buildings in this area are of the famous Catalan Modernist style, and actually Eixample has the highest concentration of Modernist buildings in the world. Eixample is also home to the famous Passeig de Gracia shopping street, which is filled with designer boutiques, fancy restaurants, and modern bars.
Eixample is also filled with must see's: it is home to the world renowned Antoni Gaudi designed church, The Holy Family, to some other famous modernist buildings such as Casa Batllo and La Pedrera. There is also an Arc de Triomf, the Barcelona equivalent of Paris' 'Arc de Triomphe'
Eixample is the place to go if you like fine cuisine. The area has the multitude of delicious restaurants, ranging from Michelin starred, world famous restaurants like the 'Cinc Sentits', to small authentic Catalan restaurants like the 'La Bodegueta', to foreign restaurants like the Indian 'Mayura Lounge' and the ' Thai Gardens '. Eixample is also home to one of Europe's most famous shopping streets, Passeig de Gracia. On Passeig de Gracia you will find stores of many of the worlds biggest designer brands, such as Dolce and Gabbana, Karen Millen, and Burberry. The stores on the Passeig de Gracia are mainly high-end, but you will also be able to find the inevitable Zara, Mango and Nike.
