Passeig de Gracia is one of Barcelona’s most important business and shopping areas, located in the Eixample district. It contains many of the city’s most renowned pieces of architecture, such as the Casa Mila; probably Gaudi’s second most popular building in the city. It was constructed between 1905 and 1910; this amazing building will definitely impress you with its unique design. Just a short distance away there stands another and even older building designed by the same masterful architect. The Casa Batllo is a slender building that was first built between 1875 and 1877 and then was remodelled between 1904 and 1906 by Antoni Gaudi and Josep Maria Jujol. Another fantastic building in this area is the Casa Lleo Morera, this grandiose structure has been standing since 1864 and in 1906 it received an award for the best building of the year from the Barcelona city council.
