Barcelona´s 19th century Eixample district is the birthplace of the Modernism movement where Antoni Gaudi is considered the leader. When looking to experience Barcelona´s world renowned reputation for leading 19th century architecture, this area is king. With all the Gaudi sites within reach like the grand and impressive famous Sagrada familia, the two famous Gaudi houses of La Perdera and Manzana de la Discordia, the sprawling Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, you´ll spend hours rambling along and looking upwards. This grid-patterned area was created in the 19th century to accommodate the overflowing population from old Barcelona; luckily this coincided with Barcelona’s golden age of architecture.. Gaudí, Puig I Cadafalch, Domènech I Montaner were employed by the wealthy to build townhouses, each one more daring than the last…
The Eixample district is divided in two, the Eixample Dreta (right side) and Eixample Esquerra (left side), this divide is marked by Passeig de Gracia, a highly sophisticated shopping street…..
A large part of the Eixample’s attraction includes all the shops, restaurants, cafes and bars to be found… Passeig de Gracias alone will keep any visitor entertained for hours, but all the side streets are full of great stores, theatres, cafes with people everywhere, shopping, relaxing and enjoying an aperitif with friends and family…
EIXAMPLE ESQUERRA (LEFT)
This area of the Eixample was built at a later stage and contains some great marketplaces and some less well-known Modernista sights, however, there is still plenty going on in this area… with it’s lively, energetic atmosphere the night life is wonderful, with lots of bars and hot spots to visit while in Barcelona…
Although this side of the Eixmaple may not be teeming with elegant, must see landmarks it does have one or two treasures such as the Universtitat de Barcelona building, this is an elegant construction with very pleasant gardens and Cassa Boada and Casa Gofverichs build by one of Gaudí’s collaborators in the early 1900’s… …two markets in this area, generally frequented by locals are the Ninot and the Mercat de Sant Antoni; the latter converts into a second hand book market on Sunday mornings;
