So pretty to walk around

This area becomes so nice at night with locals and day with tourists, just a really nice cool place to walk and with parks and shade nearby

The Arc de Triomf is a great place to visit in the day or in the evening for a slow walk. The metro brings you right outside and it's always bustling with people and tourists. Check it out!

We were surprised to come round the corner & see this! Great for early morning pictures & popular as a meeting point for tours, this would make a good walk from the Barceloneta area. There is also a lovely park close by. This is worth the trek if you have time

This place is a stunning piece of work. You come out of the metro and it just hits you. We had a sunny day so against the blue sky it looked fantastic. Take a stroll right down to the Park at the other end of the walkway.

Near the City Park and the Gothic Quarter, the arch is a nice waypoint. Mostly it's something to get a picture of and walk by while people-watching. Lots of street performers tend to gather here too. It's near a metro stop and several cafes too.

Having just seen the Arc de Triomphe in Paris just two days ago, this arch was literally a mini version of it, which I actually thought was pretty neat. The difference lies, though, in that this arch is more of just a landmark and not something that you can really interact with (you cannot go inside, under, or on top... More

Very nice monument in the heart of BCN. The Arc stands in a very nice location, a fine alley and a touristic area. You can take some really good shots for this monument from across the street. Once done, pass under it and enjoy the 1km (or so) alley where street artists perform. At the end of your walk will... More

I would recommend this area for a great walk that isn't as crowded as Barceloneta or Las Ramblas and if you want to go somewhere a little quieter.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
