Wonderful modern studio apartment in the heart of the Eixample area.
This really great studio has been recently refurbished and offers a quieter reprieve to the hustle and bustle of the Ciutat Vella. Still conveniently located not far from Las Ramblas and Paseo de Gracia it is a great choice for your visit to Barcelona.
The area surrounding the apartment:
The Lorca apartment is situated in the heart of Barcelona's 19th century Eixample district, the birthplace of the Modernism movement where Antoni Gaudí is considered the leader. When looking to experience Barcelona's world renowned reputation for leading 19th century architecture, this area is king. All the Gaudí sites are within reach - the impressive and famous Sagrada Familia, the two famous Gaudí houses La Pedrera and Casa Batlló in the Manzana de la Discordia and the sprawling Hospital de la Santa Creu in Sant Pau - all within walking distance.
This really great studio apartment is an absolute must for the visitor who is looking for quality, modern decor and a slightly quieter choice of apartment yet still central.
This studio apartment is all one space but has been cleverly given the feeling of two separate areas; one for the bed and one for the living room area.
The bedroom has lovely exposed brickwork and original artwork hanging over the bed (140cm). The use of colour makes it a warm and tranquil area and very welcoming.
The living room comprises of a comfortable dark coloured sofa and cable TV, DVD and is a great place to sit back and relax and chill.
The bathroom is design from top to bottom; from the mosaic tiles to the italian design sink and shower units... fantastic!
The kitchen is on par with the rest of the apartment, totally new, sleek and modern, and comes fully equipped with everything to make your visit a hassle free one...
Please note that this apartment is on the first floor, but is a real third floor as there are "principal" and "entresuelo" levels. The building has an elevator.
This apartment has lots of natural light and is very bright and welcoming. It has lovely french windows which open up onto a balcony which looks onto the street below.
For quality, style and comfort the Lorca apartment is a great choice for your visit to Barcelona!

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 DRETA (RIGHT)
This area of the Eixample came first and is full of fabulous Modernista works, such as Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, Puig I Cadafalch’s Casa Amatller and Domènech i Muntaner`s Lleó Morera famously referred to as the Manzana de la Discordia…..
To the east of the city centre we can find another massive, towering example of Gaudí’s creativity, the Sagrada Familia; still under construction and will most likely continue to be so for a long time to come … it is full of symbolism and meaning. This amazing creation never disappoints as visitors to Barcelona are awed by it’s imagery and beauty time and time again….
One building which also warrants a mention is the Hospital de Sant Pau, still a functioning hospital to this day and it is probably the most complex example of Modernist architecture….
The Eixmaple dreta is rife with museums such as Fundavió Antoni Tàpies, Museo Egipci de Barcelona and the Fundació Francisco Goddia;
Other buildings of interest include the Palau Macaya, the tiled Mercat de la Concepció, the egg-topped Plaçá de Braus Monumantal and Barcelona’s last active bullring ….
