“The Poble Espanyol, or Spanish Village, is one of the city's most popular visitor attractions: a unique combination of architecture, contemporary art, traditional crafts, shops, gastronomy and traditions, in a pleasant setting free of traffic which is perfect for all the family. Situated in one of Barcelona's most iconic areas, just a short distance away from the Montjuïc Fountains, the Poble Espanyol was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition and resembles an actual village with replicas of 117 real-life scale buildings from different Spanish regions. You'll find a typical Andalusian quarter, a section of the Way of Saint James and examples of Romanesque monastic architecture, among others. To make the most of the visit, Poble Espanyol has been restructured and presents a new territorial design. Moreover, you can enjoy the new Feeling Spain, five immersive audio-visual capsules created with the objective of allowing you to know and feel the diversity and cultural wealth of different parts of the Peninsula: the north, the Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago), the Mediterranean, the south and the territory of El Quijote. Inside Poble Espanyol, there is also the Fiesta space a multimedia facility which allows visitors to discover the soul of a culture through its popular festivals, some of which have been recognised by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity: the festival of San Fermin, La Patum, the Castells (human towers), the Tomatina festival, the Holy Week and others. The village is also a unique place to shop, open 365 days a year. There are more than 20 crafts workshops that open every day so you can see the craftspeople working on unique pieces of pottery, glass, leather and jewellery. The Museu Fran Daurel is another main attraction at the Poble Espanyol. It showcases some 300 works by major contemporary artists, including Picasso, Dalí and Miró. Admission to the museum is included with the ticket to the Poble Espanyol. You will also find Guinovart area, a vast and luminous space with a huge sculpture of Josep Guinovart. Moreover, there is the sculpture garden where 36 sculptures transform the garden of Poble Espanyol into an evocative space where art and nature embrace each other. At the end of the garden is a viewpoint with a marvellous view of Barcelona. Last, and by no means least, there's a wide choice of bars and restaurants that reveal the variety and wealth of Spanish gastronomy. And if the weather's fine, why not sit out on one of the pleasant café terraces?”

Plaza
“es una plaza pública de forma trapezoidal que colinda con La Rambla y está situada en el Barrio Gótico de la Ciudad. Fue obra del arquitecto Daniel Molina.Concebida como neoclasicista a mediados del siglo XIX sobre un tejido destruido de la ciudad, cuenta con la particularidad de que su ritmo clásico se subvierte, cambiando mínimamente los espacios entre pilastras, para dar la impresión de que la plaza es cuadrangular. Antoni Gaudí diseñó unas farolas para colocarlas en la plaza, donde destaca igualmente la Fuente de las Tres Gracias (1876), obra de Antoine Durenne.”
