Passeig de Gràcia
Passeig de Gràcia is both one of the major avenues in Barcelona and also one of its most important shopping and business areas, containing several of the city's most celebrated pieces of architecture, including several buildings in the Modernista style (the Catalan equivalent to Art Noveau). Casa Milà (which you can see on this photo) and Casa Batlló (both by Antoni Gaudí), Casa Lleó Morera (by Lluís Domènech i Montaner), Casa Amatller (by Josep Puig i Cadafalch) are among the best!
In this photo you can also see one of the iconic lamp benches designed by Pere Falqués i Urpí in 1906.
