  • The central part of the old town.Very nice area for a walk,narrow cobbled streets,old stone buildings.You can find here some famous Gaudi creationa:Casa Batlo ,Casa Mila and Sagrada Familia. 
  • We had an apartment in L"Example, great shops and eateries, easy to use the metro to get around as well as the buses.Clean and safe. 
  • For architects, it is mandatory to go through L'eixample and enjoy the works of Catalan modernist masters of the early 20th century, of which Gaudi was the maximum exponent. Miss the Pedrera but also the Batlló on island of discord
