GETTING AROUND

  • Metro: L1 L5
  • Transport in and around Eixample Esquerra is never a problem. Due to its wide, straight streets, driving is easy and fast, and the central location means that there is always a taxi nearby if needed.
  • The area pattern of long, straight streets can start to feel a bit homogenous, although on the upside it does mean it’s fairly difficult to lose your bearings. The grid layout of the streets makes driving quite straightforward, and there are a few underground parking sites as well. Hailing a cab is never a problem, either, given the area's central location. 
  • Distance to the beach: 5,4km

AREA HIGHLIGHTS

Parc de Joan Miró

The Joan Miró park is a site of relaxation for the residents of Esquerra Eixample. This place is simply a perfect square of green tranquility in the middle of one of Europe’s busiest cities. It contains a playground for children, ping pong tables and trees provide shade for picnickers. On one side of the park is a water fountain, and on the other is the Joan Miró library, blocking out some of the road noise and reminding visitors that they are in an area dedicated to relaxation.

Michelin Star Restaurants

Eixample Esquerra caters extremely well to its wealthier residents – as well as the boutique, upmarket stores, it is home to 7 Michelin starred restaurants. Some of these specialise in traditional Catalan cuisine, while others serve international dishes. They are, of course, all extremely high quality, and between them can cater to all tastes.

Gaixample

“Gaixample” is the name of Barcelona’s vibrant gay district, which is held in a rectangular area delineated by Carrer Balmes, the Gran Via, Carrer Urgell, and Carrer Aragó. This is an area that is about having fun and is a microcosmic depiction of the city’s attitude of openness and tolerance, which have come to define the city over the years.
