Overpopulation in Barcelona’s Old Town saw the city’s expansion towards the Place Catalunya on the North. This suburb was given the name L’Eixample which means “The Extension” and it was adorned with very beautiful architectural designed buildings. The work was done by Art Nouveau architects and has got something to offer the desiring eyes.
The suburb hosts the church Sagrada Familia which is full of controversies and is still unfinished because its architect died suddenly. This serves as a monument for the architect Antoni Gaudi who died in 1962. The monument has attracted a lot of visitors over the years and remains the city’s best in terms of visitations made here.
There are also districts that came about with the Barcelona’s expansion on the further Northern area. The districts include Les Corts, Sarris, Horta-Guinardo and Gracia.
For those who have a passion for sailing and windsurfing, you can do this on the Mediterranean mild climate and cools seas of Barcelona. Olympic Port has small boats which leave the harbor to take visitors sightseeing. You will be able to see the city’s coastline and waterfront which is quite a magnificent view.
