          Eixample
          Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
          enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
          translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
          recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
          atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
          Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
          international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
          glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
