L'Eixample

A real open-air museum of modernisme.

Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí.

Keep your eyes peeled as you walk around this central area of Barcelona’s Eixample, as you’ll find so many amazing buildings with surprising architecture. They all boast magnificent floral decorations, neo-Gothic details and stained-glass work revealing the best of modernisme. A visit to the Quadrat d’Or, a real open-air museum of modernisme, is an invitation to observe this legacy of architecture and art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
