The Eixample district was built in the 1800's as the first ring beyond the old city center. It is filled with interesting architecture, wide boulevards, great hotels, restaurants and upscale shopping.

The elegant Eixample district of Barcelona is an easy walk from Placa de Catalunya and the Old City. The district showcases my kind of well thought out urban planning with streets laid out in a open grid pattern with strict controls to allow maximum sun,...More

Walk or ride through the area to see the architectural beauty. You will not be disappointed. Best to walk with a guide or guide book.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

About 20 minutes by bus. I didn't walk as it was extremely hot while I was there but I would estimate it would be about a 45 minute walk, this area is not close to the beach.
