The apartment lies within the city’s famous Eixample district. It’s grid like street pattern is easy to spot on any city map. It is certainly very different to the rest of the sprawling winding streets and when it was constructed at the beginning of the20th century it was one of the very first of its kind in the world.
Eixample is famed for its modernista design appeal, indeed millions flock here to see the architecture alone. If you are a fan of Antoni Gaudi’s organic structures then you are definitely in the right city zone. Be sure to visit his most famous creation, La Sagrada Familia. This unique towering creation remains yet unfinished, some 130 years after building began. Gaudi is long since gone but the building continues to grow, apparently in his vision. It remains probably the most controversial building in the country as its design excesses certainly do not please everyone. Some even compare its oldest segment to ‘a pile of mashed potato’. Meanwhile many other people consider Gaudi to be ‘God’s own architect’.
Strong words indeed. Of course it’s really up to you to decide whether it’s a step too far or not. There will be no shortage of people gazing up at the building when you visit and we are sure they will be happy to strike up a conversation about its aesthetics. It’s simply so different from any other building that people can’t help but have an opinion!
Head south east along the famously raucous street market, La Ramblas. Hang on to your valuables as you squeeze through the crowds and look out for the colourful bird sellers and creative human statues. They will stare at you longingly in the hope that you will drop a few euros into their collecting cans. The stalls themselves seem almost a minor attraction compared to the environment itself. Head along the street and eventually you will come out at Port Vell Marina where you can explore the fantastic Barcelona Aquarium.
