If you are a fan of history (and architecture), you must visit this neighborhood. This is where the “new Barcelona” had its beginnings in the middle of the 19th century. The municipal plan (called Cerdà) called for the creation of a large central square, so the city could build around it in a new way. The avenues here are broad, with dozens of shops and restaurants, but the best things are the buildings that surround them: they embody the city’s history.
