The Poble Espanyol is an architectural museum placed in one of the most emblematic areas of Barcelona, just a few meters far from the Fountains of Montjuic. It is one of the biggest attractions of the city because of a single set featuring about contemporary art, architecture, crafts and gastronomy in a quiet, safe and peaceful environment.

The museum consists of 117 full-scale buildings, which make a real Iberian village with streets, houses, parks, theater, school, restaurants and artisan workshops.

If you have visited other regions of Spain, then this rather tired collection of mock buildings-expensive to visit- will be a disappointment. We had time to spare so came here with an open mind, toiled up the hill from the Placa de Espanya, paid over a considerable sum of money and viewed our options. One hill top tapas bar smelled...

Poble Espanyol encapsulates the various architectures, cultures, history, handicraft, et al of the various regions in Spain. Those with an interest in history should definitely consider visiting. It was an educative experience for us, including my 9 year old.

Super place show casing diff Spanish architecture, cuisines, arts. The audio visual guide available takes some getting used to but helps to appreciate what's on offer architecturally only. Map has numbers of unique little shops. Best place to pick up good quality souvenirs and have a bite to eat too. Really enjoyed the visit. Shame it started raining towards the... More

A delightful afternoon and evening outing. "One-stop education" on the history of Spanish architecture. Life size exhibitions of the buildings and churches and what influenced the styles. Probably not one of the top 10 things to see and do in Barcelona but we were here for 5 weeks so had the opportunity to visit many different things. Loved meandering about... More

The Poble Espanyol is in Montjuich, but if you are walking there from the top of the funicular you have to walk all round it to get to the entrance - probably better to walk up from Plaza de Espana. Entry is EUR13, which is good value given how much there is to see inside - we spent most of... More

There are many great places to visit and sights to see in Barcelona... This isn't one of them. I took my Dad here today whilst on our city break after seeing lots of great reviews on trip advisor. Both me and my Dad were really disappointed with this place. It was overpriced, the staff were neither friendly or helpful. The... More

We visited here as part of our hop-on/hop-off tour of Barcelona. This site was part of the International Expo in 1929 and houses replicas of buildings from different spanish regions. There are artisans producing leather, ceramics, jewellery and other articles for sale, as well as nice restaurants. We had a lovely lunch and a nice stroll through the village. Worth... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
