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.

We stayed for four nights at the Hostal Aribau. The staff is very kind and obliging. They cleaned the room every day. There is no luxury of course but it is kind of cosy, so the price is appropriate. You are after a ten minute walk at the Catalunya. But there are also shops at
