Overview
More
Poble Espanyol in Barcelona was constructed for the World Exposition of 1929 with the intention of demonstrating the architecture and essence of the Spanish culture. It was not so much a question of recreating symbolic buildings, but rather of recreating a traditional Iberian town that represents the buildings, squares and streets of different places in Spain. Although the initial plan was to disassemble it after the event, its huge public success and critical acclaim resulted in it being maintained until today as one of the most attractive things to do in Barcelona. A few metres away from the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, at Poble Espanyol you can observe popular architectural richness and discover the culture, traditions, scenery, folklore and gastronomy of the different regions of Spain through five immersive experiences that will awake each of your senses. Art enthusiasts must visit Fran Daurel Museum: a private collection of more than 300 works by leading figures of contemporary art, including Picasso, Miró, Dalí and Chillida. Entrance to the museum is included in general admission. Open 365 days a year, Poble Espanyol is one of the most important craft centres in Spain where you can purchase unique items and admire live the work of artisans who work with different materials, including glass, leather, textiles, ceramics and jewellery, among others. This is a unique opportunity to discover all of Spain in one relaxing space!

Exorbitant price and then overly expensive food once you are in. The artisan stuff is nice and some is very well priced In essence it's a place where they try to show you what Spain is like even though you are already there

€14 admission is unwarranted here. It is a shopping/dining area that is not fully occupied, where artisans run gift shops, and restaurants line the main square. You can see glass blown, and on any given day you might see someone crafting jewelry or painting, but...More

We had a fantastic time here exploring Spanish streets,sites and buildings. Many expensive shops are inside, but it also offers a great view into different parts of Spain and of course many great photo opportunities. Worth the money.
