Overview
More
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!

This is really an open air museum with houses from all over Spain. There was a short movie about Spanish culturer, a museum of modern art (no photos allowed in both places). You tour the streets and see traditional shops/ Restaurants are expensive there
