The Eixample, with beautiful apartments for rent, is the closest area to the old town of Barcelona. It is divided into two areas, the left and the right side.
Without doubt, the street Paseo de Gracia is the most famous and elegant street of the Eixample. On this avenue we can find some of the most majestic and important architectural works in Barcelona, the famous works of Gaudí: Casa Milà or La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. Paseo de Gracia also gathers the most luxurious boutiques of the city and a lot of companies’ headquarters.
The Diagonal that crosses the entire city has its most financial and commercial side in its Eixample part. You can find a lot of different stores, boutiques and society’s headquarters.
This district of Barcelona is characterized by its square shape and modernist houses and palaces. On the right side the visitor must see the unique Sagrada Familia and the Parc Güell, all of them creations of Gaudi, and on the left side, the Joan Miró Park and many modernist buildings.
