Eixample area is the modernist and central
It extends from the old town to the distant
residential hubs and it is very easy and fun to
discover the area around its narrow streets in a
grid-like layout. The area is one of the best
places to see in Barcelona.
Modernism lies on the structures of the Eixample
district. The most popular and UNESCO World Heritage
Site to visit is the Palau de la Música Catalana. It
is the symbol of the Catalonian culture, art and
music. Plaza de Catalunya is the junction point
merging the old city with Eixample.
Casa Lleó Morera and Casa Amatller of the modernist
style are a must see. Between these structures lie
Gaudi's Casa Batlló. It has an appearance of being
made by skulls and bones with a mesmerizing roof and
the building is also known as "the house of bones".
It is located at the Paseo de Gracia that is one of
the most exclusive avenues of Barcelona and
remarkable Catalonian architects of the modernist
Antoni Gaudi's another masterpiece Casa Milá (La
Pedrera) is a must that is situated on the corner of
Paseo de Gràcia and Calle Provença. Gaudi's
fascinating design which is a UNESCO World Heritage
Site, is a must see in your Barcelona trip. A great
day out at the Eixample region is one of the best
things to do in Barcelona.
