Eixample

Before 1897, the year of the amalgamation of surrounding towns into Barcelona, Barcelona proper was what now is the district of Ciutat Vella - a relatively small part of land that was very densely occupied. Even before the mid-19th century it was clear that Barcelona needed to be expanded to accommodate the growing population. It was decided that a new district north of the city limits will be built, that would stretch as far as the town of Gràcia. The project was aptly named Eixample, or Ensanche, which meant "Extension".

The project for the new area was created by Idefons Cerdà, who stressed the importance of wide passages, natural light in buildings, sunlight, presence of greenery in urban planning. Initially, the Cerdà plan had not only the trademark street grid with wide intersections, but also gardens at every corner and a specified maximum building height, both of which were regrettably dropped by the municipality when adopting the plan. Eixample, however, was a groundbreaking urban project nonetheless, created with pedestrians and public transport (in the 19th century!) in mind, with good sewer system and an easy to navigate street plan.

Eixample has been inhabited by the upper class from the get-go, despite Cerdà's desire to make the district a mix of all incomes. The area received a remarkable amount of attention from the Modernists thanks to the fact that their wealthy patrons lived here. Antoni Gaudí's famous houses, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, are found in Eixample along with numerous works by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Enric Sagnier.

Eixample is divided onto five administrative districts: L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample (The Old Left Eixample), La Nova Esquerra de l'Eixample (The New Left Eixample), La Dreta de L'Eixample (The Right Eixample), Fort Pienc, La Sagrada Família, and Sant Antoni, occupying in total over 7 sq. km of space. Eixample remains popular and expensive to this day, not only due to the Modernist aspect of the area, but also due to its proximity to the centre of Barcelona as well as to Gràcia, to its many excellent restaurants and the upscale shopping on Passeig de Gràcia and Rambla de Catalunya.
