Barcelona, like many other European cities in the second half of the nineteenth century, decided to overthrow their defensive walls to urbanizer the area and allow a massive economic and urban expansion.

The new street network of the Cerdà Plan (Eixample Barcelona) was not a totally uniform design. They emphasized some main roads: the most important of all was the Paseo de Gracia, which linked the old town of Barcelona with the most important and popular nearby: Vila de Gracia.

In the field of architecture the most important figures were Antoni Gaudí (Casa Milà and Casa Batlló), Josep Puig i Cadafalch (Casa Amatller and the Palace of the Marquès de Quadres) and Lluis Domenech i Montaner (Casa Lleó Morera and Casa Fuster).
