We went to see the place at daytime and evening because hotel was located close. At daytime there was some fixing being done and was not possible to have proper photo from the Arc without constructions. At the evening it was way better : )

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
