Superb neighborhood with the best examples of art nouveau architecture. Stroll around and find surprisingly innovative and wonderful buildings.

L'Eixample District has been designed uniquely by single buildings covering complete city blocks. The blocks are square but the building are square with the corners cut off with 45 degree angles. Easy to see as a pedestrian or a driver, not blind. The center of...More

L'Eixample is a great area to stay; you have the benefit of being close to the transport links, on lovely wide tree lined roads but you are close to the older parts of the city and also well located to access the neighbourhoods and sights...More

I've been to Barcelona several times previously, and always stayed in the Gothic area, which I love. This time I decided on the L'Eixample district, which is very different from the Gothic, modern and close to everything. Easy safe walking, lots of restaurants and shops.

A great dustrict with so many sights to see. Many are quite close together and the walking in between is interesting in itself. It makes a great base to live in or to visit and has excellent transport links as well.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
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
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

Hello, I am planning a trip to L'eixample with my younger brother/sister and mother. I was thinking of going to a nice, calm place area where a beach is accessible. I am planning to stay for four days and three nights. Also, I was hoping to have plane tickets at least £120pp (if that is doable). I was wondering there are any beaches in L'eixample? If not, which area would be best for my requirements? Thank you.

I am afraid this district like many in Barcelona is hustle and bustle. Barcelona is a very busy city and not suitable for a beach holiday. May i suggest staying outside of Barcelona. Barcelona sits within the area of Costa... More

About 20 minutes by bus. I didn't walk as it was extremely hot while I was there but I would estimate it would be about a 45 minute walk, this area is not close to the beach.
