Platja de l'Eixample

Beach in La Sagrada Família & L'Eixample

In a hidden garden inside a typical Eixample block is an old water tower and an urban 'beach', the Platja de l'Eixample. In reality, this is a knee-height swimming pool (60cm at its deepest) surrounded by sand. It's perfect for little ones, with lifeguards on hand.
