Map of Petit Palace Barcelona

The Petit Palace BCN offers a convenient location in the Eixample district. It's is located within walking distance to the Gothic Quarter, as well as Plaza Catalunya, an important landmark containing fountains and statues and the spot where many of the city's most famous streets meet. For instance, Las Ramblas -- the bustling pedestrian-friendly street mall -- begins here, as does Passeig de Gracia for high-end shopping. Many metro stations are nearby, such as Urquinaona, Passeig de Gracia, and Catalunya. In addition, the Aerobus stop is just a few blocks away and offers direct access from Barcelona International Airport -- a much cheaper alternative than taking a taxi.

Eixample is home to the city's best examples of modernist architecture, including the Casa Milá building and Sagrada Família church that were both designed by Antoni Gaudí. In addition to its eccentric architecture, this district is known for a vibrant nightlife scene, with many trendy bars and clubs found here, especially in the gay section (which is popularly known as Gayxample).
