A relatively tranquil street during the day, carrer París boasts a host of Barcelona’s best restaurants, bars and cocktail bars to spend the evening among the residents of the Eixample and further afield, who choose it as one of their favourite meeting points.
Running obliquely to the Diagonal and meeting it at the junction of carrer Balmes, the street is an alternative route between the upper part of the Left Eixample and Rambla Catalunya and Passeig de Gràcia, with some elegant modernista and classical buildings along the way and some excellent gastronomic experiences.
The main buildings of interest are located close to the Diagonal.
- París 202, 204 (between Balmes and Enric Granados) – two adjoining residential buildings with imposing
carved stone doorways and façades and inticate ironwork balconies. París 202 has a particularly colourful entrance lobby.
- París 182 (between Enric Granados and Aribau) – richly decorated stonework and carved wood entrance door with Gothic windows and parapets on its upper levels
