To the left of the Passeig de Gràcia, this part of L’Eixample is more middle class. You’ll find the Mansana de la Discòrdia, a city block where buildings by five Modernisme architects can be found: Casa Batlló (Antoni Gaudí), Casa Amatller (Josep Puig i Cadalfach), Casa Lleó Morera (Lluis Domenech i Montaner), Casa Bonet (Marcel·lià Coquillat), and Casa Mulleras (Enric Sagnier). L’Eixample Esquerra is also a gay-friendly area, often referred to as “Gaixample.” Many take advantage of its proximity to various university campuses, such as the Universitat de Barcelona, giving the area a wide array of young citizens.
