The village was constructed in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition in order to display the architectonic diversity of Spain. Finished in 13 months, it is something between an open-air museum and a theme park.
The park contains very precise replicas of many remarkable Spanish buildings from fifteen autonomous communities of Spain. There are also craftsmen working in the village who create handmade items such as blown glass, ceramics, or Spanish guitars - the items are then sold to the visitors.
The Museum Fran Daurel exhibits works by contemporary Spanish artists - here you can find paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí or Joan Miró.
The area also comprises various stores with gourmet products, restaurants, and bars. The famous flamenco Tablao del Carmen is located here. Guided tours of the village are available in several languages. Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash.
You can get here by metro - Espanya Station (line 1 and line 3), by trains, and by buses - Poble Espanyol stop (lines 13, 23 and 150).
