In Short: largely residential area popular with middle-class Catalan families, just to the left of the Passeig de Gràcia.
Highlights: Casa Batlló and its townhouse neighbour Casa Amatller, having an evening meal al fresco on the chic Rambla de Catalunya, sunbathing in the Parc de Joan Miró.
Getting around: the area has quite a few metro stations on different lines, meaning it's easy to get around the city in any direction. The blue line will take you straight to the Sagrada Família. The grid layout of the streets means it's also hassle-free to navigate on foot or by car.
Why stay: brimming with nightlife, plentiful public transport connections, close to the central Plaça Catalunya and Passeig de Gràcia, tends to have large apartments.
Description: Constructed slightly later than LEixample Dreta, LEixample Esquerra, to the left of Passeig de Gràcia, has the same geometric layout and broad streets as its right-sided neighbour. However LEixample Esquerra is home to a greater mix of people including students and a significant gay community (the area is often referred to as Gaixample). Its position to the north of Plaça de Catalunya means that all of the major transport routes in Barcelona can be accessed with ease. With a vast range of eateries catering to all budgets, plenty of bars and clubs, and a myriad of shops, LEixample Esquerra has plenty to offer all tastes and budgets.
