A modernist treasure trove full of elaborate and often fantastical buildings, elegant landscapes and upmarket fashion - there’s really something magical about Eixample. The area sits on the right hand side of Passeig de Gràcia, the main boulevard that separates the city. Its gridded layout keeps things nice and simple for walking around - most tourists flock to Gaudi’s emblematic Sagrada Familia church, but Eixample itself is a peaceful, residential neighbourhood that offers many an opportunity for a quite respite. You could easily spend the day just popping in-and-out of the various artist galleries, small boutiques and neighbourhood cafes scattered about, that is if you can tear yourself away from the high-end shops that line the avenues. To top it all off, Eixample is only two metro stops away from Placa Catalunya at the city centre.
