When it comes to where to buy an apartment in Barcelona, there are 10 districts that split the city into 10 different Barcelonas, each with unique and special characteristics. Today we will focus on our favorite neighborhood: Eixample.
Eixample is one of Barcelona´s largest districts, famous for its octagonal, urban planning created by Ildefons Cerdá, a Catalan engineer, urbaniser, and politician. It sits just above the winding streets of the Old Town and features the large avenues, a major concentration of the modernist buildings and quite a few of the city´s landmarks.

Eixample is one of the top options for foreign families, when they choose where to buy an apartment in Barcelona. The properties in this neighborhood feature modernist elements such as moldings, curved ceiling – “boveda catalana”, hydraulic mosaic tiles, stained glass windows, and unique entrance doors. These apartments are most in demand because of their access to lights, views and space. The buildings have beautiful balconies and facades with moldings.
