The Sant Antoni part of the Eixample district is an area that has reinvented itself as one of the premier dining destinations of Barcelona with world class cuisine as well as a colorful and and quirky area of shops, bars and cultural spaces in neighboring Raval. You’re a short stroll away from Passeig de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya, praised by locals for being one of the nicest in central Barcelona. Quiet and walkable, there is an excellent selection of good restaurants, shops and galleries. Sometimes referred to as the Cuadrado de Oro, it’s the epicenter for modernism in Barcelona and features the work of modernist architects Antoní Gaudi (the famous La Pedrera is just a short walk from the apartment), Enric Sagnier and Doménech I Muntaner. Gayxample, the gay district, is also in Eixample and is a lively, cosmopolitan area. A seaside town of celebrated artistic, culinary and cultural treasures, Barcelona is home to stunning Gothic, Medieval, Romanesque and Modernist masterpieces all housed along the sparkling Mediterranean with the forest covered Collserola Hills as a backdrop.
