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

international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
