Eixample hotels

L'Eixample, or "the extension", is an area of Barcelona designed to deal with the swelling population of the 19th century. Consisting of wide streets with distinctive plazas with cut off corners Eixample was designed by Ildefons Cerdà.

Lying above Plaça Catalunya, it quickly found favour with the middle classes and soon the modernista architects were being commissioned by some of the more status conscious inhabitants - Passeig de Gràcia includes two of the finest examples of Gaudí's work, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera. Today the Eixample is the main shopping and business district of Barcelona
