Located in one of the most emblematic areas of Barcelona, within walking distance from the Fonts de Montjuïc, the Poble Espanyol is one of the most attractive sites in the city for its unique setting, featuring contemporary art, architecture, crafts, shopping and dining. All this in a calm and peaceful environment, ideal for children and adults.
TYPICAL SPANISH ARCHITECTURE
The Poble Espanyol synthesises the architectural and cultural wealth of Spain. Built in 1929, it is a town in itself, including recreations of squares, streets and 117 buildings from different Spanish regions. In the same site you can find the typical Andalusian quarter, a fragment of the Camino de Santiago and examples of Romanesque monastic architecture, among others.
A CRAFTS AND SHOPPING CENTRE
The exhibition shows the daily activity of more than 30 artisans from different generations, who can be watched live in their workshops while crafting glass, leather, ceramics, jewellery, Spanish guitars, etc. They offer unique or custom-made pieces to visitors. The Poble Espanyol is a unique shopping centre open to the public 365 days a year.
FIRST FIGURES OF CONTEMPORARY ART
More than 300 art pieces by leading figures of Spanish contemporary art such as Picasso, Dalí and Miró are part of the Fran Daurel Museum. The entrance to the site gives access to the museum, which also includes the Sculpture Garden, an inviting space where art and nature come together harmoniously.
THE RICHNESS OF TRADITIONAL CUISINE
The Poble Espanyol offers a wide range of bars and restaurants which allow you to explore the variety and richness of Spanish cuisine, known worldwide. Enjoying an excellent paella or delicious tapas in a quiet environment is quite an experience. And if weather permits, why not relax on one of the pleasant terraces?
