Glòries is my current home, located in the Sagrada Família neighborhood of the district of L’Eixample. “L’Eixample” in Catalan means “the enlargement,” referring to the grid-like expansion of the city after Barcelona was allowed to build outside the labyrinth of its medieval walls in 1856. This is a beautiful part of the city because of all the 19th century buildings and the stunning Sagrada Família church. Also close to my home is the new Encants market (Nou Mercat dels Encants) and the colorful Torre Agbar, whose lights add to the city skylight.
