The Eixample or "widening" is a new area of Barcelona, it is an extension that benefited thanks to the approach of a Catalan engineer Cerdá who felt weakness for straight lines during the 1850s. Thanks to him this area is distributed on grid and each block has an internal courtyard. It is a well-known view of the city, which can be seen perfectly in the panoramic photos of Barcelona. Thanks to this approach it is very difficult to get lost in this neighborhood.
This neighborhood is not only home to every fan of international designer stores, that walking through its streets you can find the typical Gaudí buildings or interesting art galleries.
