El poble espanyol

This unique medieval city was built in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition as the pavilion dedicated to art. Right from the start, it was conceived as a real “village” in the heart of a city. The aim was to give an idea of what might be an “ideal model” of an Iberian village that would bring together all the characteristics of all peninsular villages. It was constructed by the Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cada- Falch.

El Monasterio

It’s the most special location inside the Poble Espanyol. It is a replica of different romantic Catalan monasteries dating from l X and XI century. This sanctuary is composed of all the details needed for an extraordinary outdoor experience, giving different possibilities: rest areas, private sections, showrooms or workshops.

Plaza Mayor

Its a reproduction of the Riaza Castilian Square in Segovia, a space that allows multiple activities at all hours of the day.
