Visit this mock village with buildings designed in a range of Spanish architecture. Watch craftsman in their workshops and on Sunday enjoy kids' workshops and a family show.
Built at the beginning of the 20th century, Poble Espanyol is a village with 40 workshops showing 21 different types of craftsmanship at work. Browse the shops and art galleries and have a meal at one of the choice of restaurants. For kids there is plenty of car-free space to explore and on Sundays, children's actvities and shows are organised. If you reserve at one of the restaurants inside Poble Espanyol, and arrive within one hour of your booking time, you will have free entry to the village (see Child-friendly Barcelona restaurants). If you plan to go regularly then a great option is annual family membership - €30 for 2 adults and 2 kids and you can go as often as you like giving you an extra option for weekend family entertainment.
