Eixample translates as “extension”. This is because of the large area expanding to the city that benefits greatly from its ingenious urban planning at the hands of Catalan. This city is a home to the majority of Barcelona’s art nouveau masterpieces, high-class residential and shopping areas and on the right side of Eixample is the older, impressive architecture. Here’s our pick on the best Airbnbs in Barcelona’s Eixample district.
