Eixample Left

If you’ve ever seen an aerial shot of Barcelona, you’ll have noticed the large gridiron area of the city. This is the Eixample, the city’s largest district. Spread out over 7.4 km2, it contains lots of Modernista buildings, museums, restaurants and shops. Friendly Rentals has a wide selection of holiday apartments in the Eixample in Barcelona so you can discover one of the most representative areas of the city.

The Eixample was laid out in the 19th century by engineer Ildefons Cerdà. It was built on undeveloped land when the city walls were knocked down following a cholera epidemic. The Plan Cerdà gave Barcelona its characteristic regular layout of geometric streets, blocks with inner courtyards, sunny buildings and chamfered street corners. If you book accommodation in the Eixample, you’ll notice all these details as you stroll along its streets.

The Eixample is home to many world-famous sights, including the Basílica de la Sagrada Família and Casa Batlló. For practical purposes, this large area is divided into two halves: the Left Eixample and the Right Eixample, with Carrer Balmes as the imaginary dividing line. The holiday apartments in the Eixample in Barcelona that you’ll find on this page are all in the Left Eixample; to see ones in the Right Eixample, click here.

The Left Eixample is a mainly residential area, with lots of services and excellent transport connections. It’s ideal for holiday apartments if you’re travelling with kids. You’ll find all kinds of restaurants, museums, markets and small parks. It’s greatest asset, though, is its architecture. The Eixample took shape when Modernista style was all the rage with the Catalan bourgeoisie in Barcelona, who created buildings with surprising materials and shapes: coloured glass verandas, iron balconies, sculptures on the facades, mosaics, impressive wooden doors...

The Left Eixample is also very popular with the LGBT+ community, with lots of bars and discos in what has become known as the “Gayxample”. It’s not an exclusively gay area, but you’ll find lots of LGBT+ leisure and shopping options. Check out our apartments in the Left Eixample to get a feel for the area!

One of the most impressive areas is Plaça Universitat, where you’ll find the 19th century Historic Building of the University of Barcelona. Joan Rubió i Bellver’s Casa Golferichs, a beautiful Modernista building, is open to the public as a cultural centre.

The most emblematic neighbourhood in the Left Eixample is Sant Antoni, famous for its restaurants and, above all, its elegant 19th century market. The Mercat de Sant Antoni, built in iron in Modernista style, has stalls selling fruit, vegetables, fish and other fresh produce, as well as tapas bars and a few clothes stalls. It is best known for its Sunday market, where you’ll find books, antiques and collectors’ objects.
