L'antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample is a neighborhood that belongs to the district of l'Eixample. We highlight of this area the Public University of Barcelona, a prestigious educational center. The Hospital Clínic is also located here, one of the most nationally recognized medical centers.
The Hospital Clinic and the Faculty of Medicine were inaugurated in 1907, and the Ninot Market in 1935. These monuments served to boost the interest of developers specialized in housing construction.
