Compared to the narrow, winding streets of the old town centre, Eixample is made up of a broad network of avenues, lined with grand Modernist architecture, epitomised by the Sagrada Familia, Hospital de Sant Pau and La Pedrera. Another historically significant landmark is the 1900 Palau Robert on Passeig de Gracia, which was originally built as a private residence for the marquis Robert Robert i Suris of Genoa. The palace was later handed over to the local council who have since opened it up to the public as an exhibition space, concert hall, tourist information and bookshop. The public gardens around the venue are also stunning, especially during the summer months when the palm trees and other exotic flora are in full bloom. Entrance to the grounds is free to all visitors and open 7 days a week, including holidays.
The Eixample district provides the perfect excuse for some retail therapy and gift buying due to its wide variety of independent and artisan stores. For the littlest members of the family, you can’t beat the adorable Lotta boutique, selling upmarket children’s clothing in an innovative space. The store concept is based around the fictional character Pippi Longstocking which pairs perfectly with the sweet and playful items of clothing, from fun, printed dressing gowns to bathing suits and even wall decorations!
