Restaurants in Eixample

The district of Modernisme offers creative cuisine

If you see aerial views of Barcelona or approach the city from above, then you will find the Eixample district to be immediately striking: the board-like pattern of streets is particularly distinctive. The district connects the Old Town and the formerly independent communities of Gràcia, Sant Martí, Les Corts and Sants.

District Info

More information about the district of Catalan Art Nouveau (Modernism) can be found on our page about Eixample.

In the Eixample district, designed by the urban planner Illdefons Cerdà, there was plenty of room for the creativity of the Modernist architect to run free. So the area is a veritable open-air museum, in terms of Catalan Art Nouveau. Many of the buildings, such as Gaudi's famous buildings Casa Batlló, Casa Milà and the Sagrada Familia, are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage.
