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.

The Poble Espanyol was designed in 1929 as an exhibition of the various building styles in the various areas and historical periods throughout Spain. It also hosts several very nice reasonably priced restaurants, classical crafting workshops and souvenir shops. For a small fee you can rent a multilingual audio and video guide to explain in detail all the architectural styles.... More

We visited this place during our Barcelona highlights tour arranged by the Julia travels, it was a good Cultural Center, there were few good restaurants and bars, Good to have a walk and explore, I noted one thing, the water closet wasn't clean much and the few door locks were broken in the ladies section.

Perhaps a good idea, as all the regions of Spain are supposedily represented. For us, a lifeless recreation, reminicent of Disneyland, but without the fun. Our only poor meal was here.

The atmosphere is good, all Spain in one place, little crafts shops and places with typical for a region food and ambiance to eat. Calm atmosphere and not that full of tourists. I'd recommend it for groups and families with children.

If you come for the annual beer fest you will be very dissapointed. They had only one beer vendor with 4 options. As far as the rest of the "park". Reminds me of Vegas or Epcot. Not worth 14 euro.

Mainly visited by Spanish school children, this place is a sort of open-air museum showing different architecture culture and handicrafts of Spain. Devoid of mass tourism it is a great opportunity to get a glimpse of the rest of Spain while in Barcelona. Also great place to taste regional kitchen in one of the many small cafeterias inside the place.

This area is a nice way to see examples of all the different places in Spain, all in one area. Would remind you of a Spanish version of EPCOT only having JUST Spain, and no rides. So there are many restaurants, shops, a glass blower, gardens, etc.

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.
