Barcelona Visual

Here is one of the icons of Barcelona, the area of Eixample (Extension), with parallel and perpendicular streets, the specific chamfered corners and the Diagonal Avenue crossing them. “Ildefons Cerdà, the engineer who designed it, was inspired by the idealist texts of the 19th century. Although the initial layout of the project has been altered, the great number of trees, the width of the streets and the beauty of some corners still reveal its initial ambition to be an urban garden.”
