What Country is Eixample in?
In contrast to the narrow Barri Gòtic is the district of L’eixample (spoken: laschampla). About 1850, with the beginning of industrialization, Barcelona began to expand beyond the city walls to create a living and working space of the rapidly growing population. During this time, the striking chessboard pattern of the L’eixample (extension) was designed by the city planner Ildefons Cerdà. Cerdà had taken the floor plans of the American cities as a model here.
