In the middle of the city. Little bathroom and little kitchen. Light and silence with a beautiful view of one of the oldest churches of the city.
Where is it?
The apartment is located in the Eixample, Barcelona’s most easily recognizable neighborhood thanks to its geometrical grid pattern. Home to some of the city’s finest Modernist architecture, the neighborhood has many bars and restaurants, as well as designer and high-street shopping.
The Eixample was designed as an extension of the historic old town of Barcelona as the city’s population swelled in the 19th century. Urban planners needed to find a solution and so conceived of this grid-pattern neighborhood of modern houses, which would connect with the then-independent villages Sarrià and Gràcia. As a result, many of the houses in the Eixample date back to the 19th and early 20th century, when the architectural movement known as Catalan Modernism was in full swing. Leading Modernists such as Antoni Gaudí, Lluis Domenech i Montaner, and Josep Puig i Cadafalch all have buildings in the Eixample.
