Eixample is a huge district of tree-lined streets that feature some of Barcelona’s most famous modernist buildings.
The streets north of Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes (from Urgell metro station to Universitat metro station) are home to much of Barcelona’s gay scene. Hotels near this area are very popular with gay travellers because they are close to the gay nightlife and it’s just a short walk to the historic city centre.
