About
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!

A very interesting place. A compilation of buildings to represent Spain in the 1930s. Very well done. Great, explanatory museum. (Also containing many restaurants and shops, which we skipped, as looking touristy.) Family place, also. 1-2 hours.

Like others have said, que lastima. The plaza Mayor is dirty with intolerable music, dirty leftover food with pidgeons eating on the tables. No garbage cans. The shops are lovely. But the rest makes you want to get out as fast a possible.

Good location for a couple of hours with children. A theme village of life from different areas of Spain and art museum and sculptures. Children are safe to run around without worrying about traffic and there’s quite a nice picnic/play area with some slides. We went when there was a Halloween event on and it was well decorated with actors dressed up. The downside is that all the restaurants are very much the same and food isn’t great and isn’t that cheap either. Menus have photos of the food on which is off putting straight away. None of the servers I encountered spoke any English either which I found odd in such a touristy setting. I know a little Spanish, currently learning, and thought it would be enough to get by while visiting Barcelona but encountered a very rude waitress who didn’t have time for me to try and didn’t speak any English. She even said in Spanish ‘I only speak Spanish here’ so I understood that. My son wanted churros and made it sound like I was being completely unreasonable for asking for them. They weren’t available. She then felt the need to explain the other items on the menu as if I couldn’t see the terrible photos of the food - pizza, pasta, paella etc, but we had already had lunch at one of the other restaurants (which was exactly the same food anyway). I was starting to say no, thank you, and then order some drinks when she snapped the menus shut, told me no way, I couldn’t order anything, and stormed off. I’m completely unsure what caused this sort of reaction and should not be the type of service provided in any restaurant. Very disappointing and out a bit of a downer on my mood for the rest of the day. We left Poble Espanyol soon after as I couldn’t enjoy wandering around after that.

This was the biggest waste of €45 and it was totally lacking in atmosphere and visitors, although it was a Thursday afternoon end of September. You immediately get the feeling you have paid to enter some themed shopping centre. Only a handful of the shops contain actual crafts the rest are the usual tourist rubbish or have no relevance to the history or culture of Spain. Many of the attractions are a big disappointment, for example I walked into an exhibit about Santiago de Compastela which turned out to be just a tiny cubicle with a video screen and 2 mirrors. We tried to go for a drink only to be told they were closing, nearly 2 hours before the venue. The only positive was the architecture which is beautiful but definitely not worth the entrance fee. Wish had read the other reviews before going

My husband and I stopped here yesterday, September 12th, while on the hop on hop off tour bus.
This is a great place to check. Great history and clean restrooms , plenty of restaurants.
And it wasn't very busy.
If you don't have a ticket , you can buy them at the entrance and get a discount if you show that you have hop on hop off tour bus ticket.
Cool place to visit.

Really disappointing...
We had read the reviews saying it's nice to visit the village especially if you have kids...
We just walked around for a few minutes and left the place...
It was no more than a nice place with shops, cafes and restaurants...

Really disappointing. We have traveled around Spain and thought this would be a great finale to it. Hopeless, one craftsperson on display... Terrible video presentations. Waste of time and do expensive.

An overpriced attraction, selling arts an crafts, many of which can be bought elsewhere in the city without having to pay an entrance fee.
Very few shops. No atmosphere as the place was very quiet. The art gallery wasn't even open. Go to the Gothic quarter of Barcelona and experience real architecture rather than some mocked up imitation.

Used google maps to find the entry, maps takes you to all the service entries, took half an hour to find the entry - directly across the road from the big bus hop off bus stop.
The park itself - underwhelming, some areas look like movie sets. Food at the restaurant at number 43 was nice, staff were friendly and helpful.
Most of the craft stores were closed, the one shop we found, stood at the counter for 10mins after placing purchases on the counter for the retailer to answer emails and texts on her phone, file some paperwork and serve a local before continuing to add up our purchase total.
Some areas were closed due to function packing up from day before, reduced admission was applied at €7 so not too bad, but probably wouldn’t go again or recommend

Somewhat strange place where we paid €45 for 4 adults, a mix of locals , 2 full price and 1 senior plus two small children (free)
The architecture which is a copy of different buildings around Spain is pleasant but this is essentially a shopping and eating location which you pay to visit. The modern art gallery is good and included in the entrance fee, but the children’s play area was closed when we visited and the picnic site is very disappointing .
It seems to me that as a local I would do my shopping elsewhere for free rather than paying to enter. Would it not be better to offer free admission to encourage more people to visit, charging the many craft shops selling hand made jewellery,ceramics, etc a slightly higher rent for the increased foot fall. On a Saturday in June it was not busy.
