About the area:

Eixample, which translates as “extension” in recognition of its status as the newer part of the city, is a large area north of Plaça de Catalunya spreading left and right of Passeig de Gràcia.

The area is indeed an extension to the city that benefits greatly from its ingenious urban planning at the hands of Catalan engineer Cerdes in the 1850s. Cerdes had a fondness for straight lines and the whole area is set out in a grid with each block having an inner courtyard. This means that it is hard to get lost in Eixample, and moreover, easy to find places.

Nowadays Eixample is famous for being home to the majority of Barcelona’s art nouveau masterpieces, and a high-class residential and shopping area.

The right side of the Eixample is the older and therefore has more of the impressive architecture, but really there is not a huge difference between the two sides.

Passeig de Gràcia is the heart of Eixample and the line that cuts the area into two from “Eixample left” and “Eixample right”.

Eixample is a safe and residential part of the city but there is also a vibrant nightlife and a thriving café culture. Eixample is a beautiful barrio to wander round, take in the glorious architecture and people-watch from one of the many terrace cafes.

It is in Eixample that you will find some of the best, and most expensive, restaurants in town. This combined with some internationally known bars such as Dry Martini makes the area a pleasant place to spend an evening.

Transport to and from the area is good. Eixample is serviced by several metro stops, as well as the FGC train. However the area is central and most other parts of the city are within walking distance.
