Feels like NYC with motorcycles, more chaotic traffic and a lack of skyscrapers. This is a mediterranian city, but don't bother looking for any public squares or a true culture of staying outside unless you don't mind traffic. We rarely rate anything so clearly negative,...More

We walked back from the outskirts of Barcelona through eixample district back to las ramblas. This was worth venturing to, and visiting the shops, markets along the way.

We visited this area the last day of our vacations. We wanted to visit a traditional neighbour without many tourists, so we visited it. Our choice was very good, we walked in the area and finally we enjoyed a well-tasted sagria in placa del sol.

First, I found one gallery. There I found a map for modern art galleries in Barcelona. The density was the highest in Eixample.

This was a very fun place to stay and shop. Lots of little places to grab a bit and just sit and people watch.

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

Hello, I am planning a trip to L'eixample with my younger brother/sister and mother. I was thinking of going to a nice, calm place area where a beach is accessible. I am planning to stay for four days and three nights. Also, I was hoping to have plane tickets at least £120pp (if that is doable). I was wondering there are any beaches in L'eixample? If not, which area would be best for my requirements? Thank you.

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.
