Built at the beginning of the 20th century, Poble Espanyol is a village with 40 workshops displaying 21 different types of craftsmanship at work. Browse the shops and art galleries and have a meal at one of several restaurants. For kids there is plenty of car-free space to explore and on Sundays, children’s actvities and shows are organised. You can pick up a treasure hunt pack from the information desk available in different languages. 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. If you plan to go regularly then a great option is annual family membership.
Poble Espanyol Children’s Activities
A fun way to explore the village is to take part in a “Gymkhana” activity with all the family. This does not involve horses, but is the Spanish word for a type of treasure hunt game of discovery. Can you find a forest that is not outdoors? or why a certain building is known as the “Bell Tower of Mirrors”?.
