El Pueblo Español - Poble Espanyol (Spanish Town) in Barcelona
Pueblo Español (Spanish Town)
This unique space on the slopes of Montjuïc was created on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1929, and combines art, recreation and culture.
Located within the city of Barcelona, the site could be called a summary in monuments of the different towns and villages of Spain. Laid out like an urban collage, its 49,000 square metres of pedestrian areas contain representative examples of the popular architecture of Spain. There are 117 scale reproductions of buildings which form a model of the ideal Spanish town, featuring the main characteristics of each region. A stroll around its streets and squares is like taking a trip around all the different regions of Spain. And what's more, its numerous bars and restaurants offer a chance to discover the typical Spanish gastronomy.
However, this attraction has a lot more surprises in store for visitors, as it is also an active leisure, culture and crafts centre. It is home to the most important collection of craft workshops on the península. Not only can you buy crafts items, you can also learn how to make them yourself in the courses and family-oriented activities on offer at weekends. The leisure options include a variety of other entertainments such as storytellers, street performers, puppets and concerts. The open-air Sculpture Garden and the collection of modern art in the Fran Daurel Foundation are among the other interesting activities available at the Pueblo Español Spanish Town
