Balconies and balustrades – part 1
A city’s soul – and that of its quarters – is made up of the people who live and work there, the places they meet, eat and have fun, of the visitors and those passing through, but also of the legacy left in its architecture. The streets of the Eixample have their own character, reflected in these images that bear the mark of the designers and architects of the second half of the 1800s, who created this new quarter combining classical and modernista aesthetics to create its distinctive style.
Here’s a wee tour of some of the sights you’ll find as you explore the streets of the quarter.
