What We Think

Eixample Esquerra is one of the largest but safest areas in Barcelona. Many Families settle here as you can find larger apartments with balconies. We think it’s a great place to rent in as there are a lot of green spaces to relax and enjoy the sun, which can be hard to find in other areas of Barcelona. What’s more, this area is perfect for students as there are many University Campuses within Eixample Esquerra, there are larger apartments to share and the streets are full of cool, cheap bars.

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.
