Both times we have been in Barcelona, we have stayed in this district. It’s very convenient to all of the sights and is easily walkable and safe! We love it!

Come to stroll the wide boulevards and look at the lovely modernista buildings - a complete contrast to the the Barri Gotic and other older parts of the city

Our AirBnB was in L'Eixample. It was a perfect location to walk nearly everywhere. Many lovely tapas bars and bakeries. Pleasant to wander and feel the sophistication and history of Barcelona.

enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
