Very well done! This gives you a perfect idea of what you have to go see while in Spain. It is fantastic to walk around all the regions of Spain and the atmosphere is well re-created, but it is of course way better to jump on the train and go visit Andalusia, Galicia and the other regions.
Poble Espanyol is a cool take on a museum. It features architecture from all over the country into a small patch of land on Montjüic. It's a great place to learn more about the culture and history of the different regions of Spain. I really liked the fact that there weren't many tourists around and I had the space to explore. In the end, Poble Espanyol wasn't very special and didn't stand out; that's why I would say it isn't a must-see in Barcelona.
Nice place and if you have discounted prices tickets it's really a good way to see Spanish architecture in one place. You can have nice meals in different restaurants and there's a REAL PASTRY SHOP with cakes and bonbons not like in other places where the maximum is croissant or churros... A real sweet orgy for the eyes and taste...
Cool place, historic interest. Go early to avoid crowds (although the shops do not open until maybe a couple hours after the park opens - you can use this time to see everything more privately and get nice photos). Also has a nice view of Barcelona. It's a short 10 minute walk to the subway. Well worth a visit!
As an attraction in itself I wouldn't recommend it, it's very dated. It's better for the events that they put on whether music or food ones. As a traffic free place to eat or drink it certainly has its merits. It's like a village within the city directed at the tourist with souvenir shops and restaurants. The art gallery is pretty good though.
We loved it ! So gorgeous and great views . We did Spain experience where we were brought in to a huge room with massive screen , doors were closed , we laid on bean bags and enjoyed an 8 min show. It was fab! The little food places were nice and people were lovely. There was a show due that night as well but we visited in the morning so missed it. I'd love to come back !
This was my favourite place in Barcelona. We went immediately upon opening and we were the only ones there. This led to us getting to take some really beautiful photos and we enjoyed the scenery before the hustle and bustle. After more tourists came in, and the shops opened, it gave the place a lot of life and we enjoyed having lunch and a coffee there. The museum is really well laid out and really gives you the feeling of being in each different place. Reminded me a little of Epcot in Florida, with its world showcase exhibition. This is a really nice taste of different places in Spain.
It's a great representation of the whole country in one place. I love the concept. The 10 minutes long film about Spanish festivals was very informative. The food at the local restaurant in Andelucia was excellent.
Very fun place to see the different styles and influences of Spanish architecture. It almost takes you through time. They also have little exhibits and you can check out glass blowers and people making leather goods. Would recommend.
Very neat attraction. Museums, shops, local craftsman showing off their creations, restaurants all wrapped up in recreations of different Spanish building styles through the ages. Well worth the price of admission. Close enough to a number of other attractions to make it worthwhile to take a cab out of the downtown area.
Great place for some local Spanish shopping is good quality without the exorbitant price tags. Lovely people in the shops, happy to show explain their work and creations. Food was a bit of a disappointment. The re creation of architecture is mildly impressive.
This is an extensive place, much bigger than it seems when you walk in. Allow at least a couple hrs. We went on our 1 day in Barcelona, a Saturday, and I was disappointed a lot of stuff was closed. It was first thing in the morning, and I could see they have a lot of shops, restaurants, demonstration places, etc. Most closed. It put me in a very grumpy mood, but by the time we finished at the monastery with cloisters and amazing view, I was happy again. Lots of good photo ops. They have brought bldgs. from all over Spain to show different architecture, different time periods. If you've seen all the other famous stuff in Barcelona, don't miss this!
I love the active museum with covers the history of Spain in its regions which is enjoyable for all ages.. The best part about this museum is the amazing parties and events it holds either outdoors or indoors depending on the size. -careful to get a taxi after it'll cost a fortune, just walk down the hill and pay half in plaza espanyol
Gives you the glimpse of Spain's different regions in a nutshell. Lot of activity going in there. Lot of plays and music. Please make sure if have audio guide if you want to know about the region's also in these old architectural building you can't go in to see how they looked as most of them have shops and food places in them. Why only three stars because there want anything extraordinary there is an entry fee and I was looking for more of Spanish country side experience and all I got was building with plaques telling which century architecture it was .
Nice place to visit. You can see buildings from all Spain. All the shops are selling hand made objects and some of them are made in the shop and you can see the process. In the night the place have a special charm. You have a beautiful panorama of Barcelona. In a presentation room they created a special place and if you enter you can smell the orange flowers.
A nice place. A copy of a traditional Spanish village build to show tourists how people used to live. I guess. Mainly restaurants and shops. Not much to do. I didn't really understand why the attraction is so popular.
Wasn’t quite interested to pay to get in there at the beginning, yet once in there, it’s worth it. Neat way to experience all NWSE of Spain in a nutshell. Picasso and the contemporary art collection. Local artisans stores in appreciating the variety of arts, crafts and food. Numerous cafes and restaurants along the way to enjoy the walks from day to night.
Great some town where one can see the best regions of Spain but in a miniature version. I highly recommend to go especially to view the different building and architectural styles of each section of Spain. They also sell hand made goods such as glass, leather goods.
I've visited this place twice over the course of a few years, but to be honest I think it is not worth it especially for how expensive the entrance fee is. The aim of the place is to offer the visitors a brief experience of different parts of Spain, and it is of course quite visually appealing and a nice "crash course". However my personal opinion is that it is always the best when you go on the actual streets and experience the real life of the city. Another negative thing about the place is that they don't have a cheaper price over the winter months when a lot of shops inside are on vacation and a lot of sites are under maintenance.
