L?Eixample District, Barcelona: 21 reviews and 33 photos
Above Placa de Catalunya which is at the top of Las Ramblas (and is a good central reference point for the city), is the mecca of modernism known as the Eixample. Some of the best shopping and dining can be found here. City planners (foremost among them, Ildefons Cerda) designed the area to be a showcase of modernist architecture, highlighted by the works of Gaudi.
Directions: Main thorougfares are Passeig de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya.
