Addresses in Barcelona can sometimes cause confusion. For a start they're all written in Catalan, though a few maps haven't yet caught up and still use Castilian spellings. In this guide, the text and maps use Catalan names and addresses.
Addresses are written as: c/Picasso 2, 4° - which means Picasso street (carrer) number two, fourth floor. You may also see esquerra, meaning left-hand (apartment or office); dreta is right; centro centre. C/Picasso s/n means the building has no number (sense numero). In the gridded streets of the Eixample, building numbers run from south to north (ie lower numbers at the Plaça de Catalunya end) and from west to east (lower numbers at Plaça d'Espanya).
The main address abbreviations used in Barcelona (and this guide) are: Avda (for Avinguda, avenue); c/ (for carrer, street); Pg (for Passeig, more a boulevard than a street); Bxda (for Baixada, alley); Ptge (for Passatge, passage); and Pl (for Plaça, square).
