    Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

    Eixample is a district of the Spanish city of Barcelona, and its name, interestingly enough, literally means “extension” in Catalan. The unique layout of this district was the brainchild of Ildefons Cerdà, who envisioned a strict grid pattern with long, straight streets, crossed by wide avenues with blocks with chamfered corners. Only half of his vision was carried through, but even so, what remains is a glorious testament to a far thinking planner. The district is often divided into two, and some neighbourhoods are quite affluent. An apartment in Eixample, Barcelona will be of the very highest standard, and will offer all the comforts that you would come to expect when staying in a modern, bustling city.

    Things to Do on Holiday in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

    Staying in self catering accommodation in Eixample, Barcelona, puts you on the very doorstep of some of the most spectacular modern architecture in not only Spain, but the world. A must see is the Sagrada Familia, a unique and often bewildering structure that is Gaudi’s unfinished basilica masterpiece. Some have described it as a termite mound, others as a cavern. See what you think! Of course, this area of Barcelona is associated very closely with Gaudi, and it might be worthwhile buying a small guide to the architecture in this area in order to appreciate it all the more. One of the most photographed buildings is La Pedrera, an avant garde building that also contains a museum to Gaudi.

    Places to Visit on Holiday in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

    Holidays in Eixample, Barcelona, are all about getting out from the apartment and exploring the city. A stroll down the street known as La Rambla is a must do, with its artists, street merchants, jugglers, dancers and musicians all adding life on the mile long road at different times of the day. Barcelona isn’t all about Gaudi, some of it is about Picasso as well! He spent quite a bit of his youth here, and there is a museum dedicated to him. If your visit is in the month of September, then you might like to witness and take part in the Festes del la Mercee, which is a week-long fiesta, with dance, performances and fireworks. Remember, that events in the evening in Spain begin a lot later than some people from the United Kingdom are used to! If you enjoyed the party, then perhaps a flamenco class or two might be just up your street, but if you have two left feet, then seeing a visit to El Tablao de Carmen is probably better!

    For your holidays in Eixample, Barcelona, you can be sure of some amazing weather, almost year around. That said, the month of August may be a little too amazing for some – I.e. humid.
