Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona

4.5
To see some of the city’s most celebrated pieces of architecture, take a leisurely stroll along Passeig de Gracia. Lined by several masterpieces designed by Antoni Gaudí, widely regarded as the country’s finest architect, this is one of the most expensive streets in the city. In the 19th century, the majestic avenue attracted some of Barcelona’s wealthiest citizens. Today, the wide boulevard is a sort of open-air museum, offering travelers a chance to see what life in the city may have been like over a century ago. Not only one of the city’s major roads, but also one of its most important commercial areas, this thriving area is also dotted with modern shops, restaurants, and hotels.

  • Walking through BCN we are inadvertently with the ride... Spacious sidewalks, shops with good quality and best offers many buildings or ex-palacios with facades to spend some time observing the typical architecture of Barcelona which does not go to see anywhere. You look and Gaudí exudes style. A walk that can be enjoyed in peace. Recommendations: casa Batlló and one to the side whose name I do not remember

  • Very very beautiful avenue, luxury shops and fascinating architecture. Gaudi's architectural works throughout this avenue are a must see.

  • High Street, with many restaurants, luxury shops and especially the beautiful Casa Pedrera, Casa Amattler and Casa Lleó I Morera. Many buildings of architectural interest. To do!

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
