EQUINOX URBAN HOUSING
The Eixample is a booming area and has become the epicenter of “hip” young people in the Catalan capital. It is a place that is teeming with natives and is therefore ideal for those looking to live like a local in Barcelona. Whether you are staying in Barcelona for a few months or for a year, we strongly recommend that you rent an apartment in Eixample to get a clear idea of the city and feel its special atmosphere.
L'Eixample, which translates to "enlargement" in Catalan, was the vision of Ildefons Cerdà, a town planner who literally enlarged the city beyond the old center. L'Eixample, is nowadays one of the largest neighborhoods in Barcelona and is perfectly squared (seen from above, it looks like a perfect grid).

Eixample is full of unusual and interesting places. So here is a list of things to see and do.
The Tàpies Foundation is a cultural center and a museum mainly dedicated to the work of the painter Antoni Tàpies. It should also be noted that contemporary art is also often promoted there. This foundation is located in a modernist building designed by the painter himself, before being restored by the famous Catalan architect Lluís Domènech I Montaner.
If you are interested in architecture and design and have come to Barcelona to see examples of the city's architecture, Passeig de Gràcia is the street to be in.
La Rambla de Catalunya (not to be confused with Las Ramblas) is an ideal place to discover the sights of Eixample. Although less well known than Passeig de Gràcia, this boulevard is lined with equally exquisite Art Nouveau structures, including Casa Juncosa and Casa Serra, among others.
This monument, designed by Josep Vilaseca I Casanovas and located at the end of Passeig Lluís Companys, was built to serve as the entrance to the Barcelona Universal Exhibition of 1888, held in Parc de la Ciutadella.
The Encants Vells - Fira de Bellcaire flea market has a long history of over 70 years behind it. This is a particularly interesting place where you can mix with Catalans.
The Palau Robert, the former residence of a businessman and a nobleman at the turn of the century, now belongs to the Generalitat. This neoclassical building serves as an exhibition center and tourist office. It is located at the junction of Avinguda Diagonal and Passeig de Gràcia.
