Passeig de Gràcia was the most elegant and majestic promenade in Barcelona in the 19th century. It connects the Plaça Catalunya with the district Gràcia. In 1906, architect Pere Falques i Urpí designed this avenue with the now famous decorative benches and streetlamps.

The presence of Barcelona's most modernist building makes Passeig de Gràcia a true open-air museum to visit during your Barcelona city break. The 3-km avenue was an artery through the Eixample district, and wealthy citizens used to live there. Riding in fancy carriages or on horseback, the aristocracy used the promenade to show off.
