Eixample Dreta

Eixample Dreta

About This Area

The Eixample district, meaning "expansion" in Catalan, was the first expansion of Barcelona built between the 19th and 20th centuries, as a means to connect the original "old town" of Barcelona (Ciutat Vella) with the surrounding small towns, which gradually became the new neighborhoods of the city. The Eixample was designed in a strict grid pattern, to facilitate traffic and airflow, which makes navigation very easy in this part of Barcelona. 

The district was divided into several neighborhoods. To the east (or right) of Carrer de Balmes, we find La Dreta de L'Eixample (literally, the right side of Eixample) and Sagrada Família. To the west (or left) of Carrer de Balmes, we have L'Esquerra de l'Eixample (literally, the left side of Eixample) and Sant Antoni.

La Dreta de l'Eixample (or Eixample Dreta) is well known for its safe, residential atmosphere and many cultural attractions including several of Gaudí's houses such as La Pedrera (also known as Casa Milà) and Casa Batlló. This neighborhood is also famous for its luxurious shops on Passeig de Gràcia, one of the major avenues in Barcelona, where shoppers can indulge in many worldwide brands. It also has a wide range of restaurants, bakeries and local shops with regular bus services. It’s broad, sunny streets offer a terrific contrast to the narrow, shady paths through the Gothic quarter.

As an exclusive neighbourhood, the right-hand side of Eixample is home to the middle-upper class of Barcelona. It’s certainly a good standard of living amongst all the upmarket bars and restaurants. It is also home to many families with young children.

Must see

Casa Mila
Also known as La Pedrera and built between 1906 and 1912, this was the last building designed by Gaudí. Due to its grandeur and uniqueness, it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its universal value. The Casa Batlló, located in the city centre, is known as one of Gaudí's greatest masterpieces! It was designed in 1904 by Gaudi on an earlier house, and has been restored several times since then. The house is also known as Casa dels Ossos (House of Bones) because of its skeletal quality and lack of straight lines.


Sagrada Familia
This is another work by Gaudi that is still under construction. This colossal Roman Catholic church began its construction in 1882 and to this day is one of Barcelona's most iconic landmarks. The cathedral was actually started by Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano, and it was in 1883 that Gaudi decided to devote his life, money and efforts to the monument. In 1926 he sadly died and, of course, the cathedral was left unfinished. The estimated date of its completion is 2020.


Paseo de Gracia
As one of Barcelona's most popular shopping streets, it is home not only to classic high street shops, but also to expensive brands such as Chanel, Tiffany and Burberry. It is the centre of all things shopping and also boasts modern and stylish cafés and restaurants.


Platje de l'Eixample
Every summer the Eixample Dreta has its own artificial beach open to children. It can be found in a small park called Torres de l'Eixample. The fountain has even been turned into a children's pool and you can use the park for just €2! It's the perfect place for children and proves that Eixample is very family friendly!
