Called by many the ‘fifth avenue’ of Barcelona, Paseo de Gracia is one of the most beautiful and notorious streets in the city. Loved by many and visited by all during their stay, Passeig de Gracia and its surrounding area has plenty to offer. Technically located in central part of Eixample, the street leads the way to the Gracia neighbourhood. The area is a very important in terms of shopping and business and it contains some of the city’s most celebrated pieces of architecture. Those include the beautiful works of Antonio Gaudi - Casa Battlo, Casa Milla and Casa Amatller - sights worth waiting in line for! Passeo de Gracia has something for everyone’s taste - whether you are into high-end shopping, fine dining, culture or just enjoying a nice long walk, the area is an absolute delight and a-must for every visitor. Even though at first it seems everything is up-scale and not appropriate for every budget, rest assured there are plenty of affordable places as well - just minutes away in the side streets of the avenue. High or low season, the street and its surrounding area are filled with people and never lose their magic. The wide boulevards and streets on the sides of Passeig de Gracia only add to the feeling of opulence this road provides. The area is also very well connected to the rest of the city in terms of public transport and minutes away from Placa Catalunya. That being said, if you are looking for beauty and exclusivity combined with culture and enjoyable cuisine, now you know where to stay during your visit to Barcelona.
