Getting About

The Garden Flat is right in the heart of Eixample, an upmarket area with long leafy streets, and a strict grid pattern designed by Ildefons Cerdà in the early 1900s.

Many parts of Eixample were built by Modernista architects, such as Antoni Gaudí who designed Casa Milà (La Pedrera) and Casa Batlló on the wide Passeig de Gràcia, as well as the Sagrada Família.

There´s plenty to do around and about the flat- it really is in the heart of the district, but if you need to get about it is also very well connected by train and bus networks.

Minutes away from the flat is Provença station. A train from here will whisk you down to Plaça Catalunya in minutes (1 stop) and from there you can pretty much connect to anywhere. Or, 10 minutes away is the station at Passeig de Gracia which has trains running south to Castelldefels beach, Sitges and on to the Roman ruins at Tarragona. Or you can head north to Girona from here. It´s one stop from here to Sants Estacio which is near the conference centre in Plaça Espanya.

Or, if you are heading for the Fira Barcelona for a conference in Plaça Espanya (Plaza España in Spanish), you can head to the Metro in Diagonal- 10 minutes walk again, and this gets you on to the Green line (L3) and you can get a train directly to Plaça Espanya.

Of course, you can just grab a taxi. They are very reasonably priced in Barcelona.
