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.

A small town made of copies from other towns all over Spain. The end result is a sort of Spanish Disneyland, complete with inflated prices and fake looking buildings, but with none of the magic. As if that wasn't enough, it's expensive as well. Completely dispensable unless you're with kids (I visited it as a kid and I loved it).

Beautiful place to walk and see the different styles and cultures of Spain in one place. It's a tourists place, so it's not cheap to shop and dine. But it's a good place to spend good time.

Spent the afternoon walking around the area, gratefully had a lot of things set up for small children to do. Small shops were nice though highly priced.

Under the roofs, towers and facades, guided by a badly synchronised video provided on a hand held tablet, one travels around "mini-Spain" visiting the boutiques of crafters selling their home made wares alongside the latest FC Barcelona merchandise. We arrived on the Red Route Tourist Bus late on a Monday afternoon and really enjoyed two hours of discovery, vowing to... More

If you go to Barcelona you must see Spanish Village. That's awesome. Spanish Village - the whole Spain in one place. At this one place you can imagine that you are going around the whole Spain. One of the best place in Barcelona.

This place was recommended to us. It's off the beaten track, not well publicised and a little more expensive than you'd think. When you first go in you wonder why you bothered! The initial exhibits are not very inspiring. But...as you start to wander down the little alley ways it becomes much more interesting. Lots of little pretty photo opportunities.... More

I was there with my boyfriend today and I was disappointed. We spent 24 Euro together and it was not worth it. For a start we got a flayer saying that there is some free food sampling there and that was misleading. Many buildings were in renovation and were covered and many were dirty and damaged. The paint in city... More

It cost 14 euros per adult & we took 25 minutes to walk around the whole place including a visit to the toilets. You are effectively paying to visit a load of tourist shops, bars & restaurants, half of which were closed. Go to the gothic quarter instead & you can walk round that for free & it has just... More

Dear Sally T, First of all let us thank you for your visit and comments, which are very useful for us. We apologize for not living up to your expectations and that’s probably because we didn’t properly convey to you the features of the enclosure: architecture, contemporary art, live handcrafting and soul (we’re about to open new contents so that...

Now where to start with this place! It's certainly different. Up in the hills near the olympic stadium this little self-contained village is a cross between the town in chitty chitty bang bang and the village of the damned! It about 13 euros each to get in. It was very quiet on the day we visited, there are local craft... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
