The Eixample in Barcelona, Spain

 
 

The Eixample area is the modernist and central region of Barcelona. 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 style.

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.
