Living in the Moon apartment means getting the best of both worlds. Just a few steps up, you’re in the classy Eixample district. Venture east and instantly you’re surrounded by history in the Gothic quarter, or Barri Gòtic.
Turn left from the building and you will find yourself at Plaça Catalunya, a central point in the city and excellent for transportation.
Just a minute’s walk west from the apartment is the Passeig de Gracia, the central avenue of the Eixample district. Fitting with the grandeur of the buildings and the majestic fountain in the middle, this street hosts some of the most exclusive shops in the city such as Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Loewe, beautifully juxtaposed amongst some of Gaudi’s architectural gems.
Turning right from your front door, you’ll find the lively Placa Universitat with the University of Barcelona, designed by the architect Elies Rogent in a style based on Catalan Romanesque.
Behind the university you’ll find Gayxample, the gay district set in the elegant Eixample area, where you can find nightclubs, shops, bars and restaurants lilt the streets.
The lovely, leafy Carrer Enric Granados, located just behind the university, with its galleries and cafes, is perfect for an evening stroll and a glass of wine.
A stroll down of the apartment brings you to the Barri Gòtic, the oldest part of the city, famous among others for its many cathedrals. The area, which dates back to medieval times, oozes character and charm. In the narrow, winding streets you come across many boutiques and trendy bars. Central to the area is Las Ramblas, the connected series of streets famous for its street artists and flower stalls and if you walk down La Rambla, you pass La Boqueria, by far the city’s best indoor food market.
Also down from the apartment is El Raval, where you will find not only the MACBA museum for contemporary art but also many galleries, boutiques, restaurants and bars. And, just to get you in the mood: if you walk from your apartment to the MACBA museum you come across Plaça Vicenç Martorell, a square with some great bars for breakfast and lunch.
Another interesting district next door is the Sant Antoni part of Eixample where you will find the less tourist Mercat de Sant Antoni food market. This area has recently reinvented itself as the place to go for excellent restaurants.
