L’Eixample

by | Jun 19, 2008 | Travel

Although Passeig de Gracia is probably best known for having Casa Milà and Casa Batlló, there are plenty of other interesting buildings along this stretch that make a leisurely walk through L’Eixample worthwhile.

The keyhole building (as Eric called it), Fundacio Antoni Tapies, was particularly interesting due to the crazy scribble wire sculpture on top, called ‘Cloud and Chair’.

All of the high-end designer stores are in this area of Barcelona, so we did a bit of window shopping.

We worked our way back to our part of town via the University of Barcelona. Their botanical gardens were somewhat blocked off, but we still got a peek.

One (of many) things I really enjoyed about Barcelona was the style of their public sculptures, like the five nuns below.
