The “Poble Espanyol de Montjuic” in Barcelona
Welcome to the 3rd most popular attraction of the top 10 places to see in Barcelona: El Poble Espanyol de Montjuic!
Montjuic is regarded as a unique place in Barcelona. Based in the Mountain of Montjuic, in the south of Barcelona, with its breath taking view, this village is a very relaxed area, and allows you to escape the chaos of the city.
The village was built inside the Catalan city in 1929 for the International exposition of Barcelona as a pavilion dedicated to art. Indeed, it still belongs to the very few monuments of an international exposition open to the public. With an area encompassing 49 000 m2, this place aims to give an idea of what would be an “ideal model” of an Iberian village. It is composed of 117 buildings, streets and squares.
Montjuic is a real city, without cars and surrounded by nature, where it is possible to find restaurants, cottage industries, associations, foundations and companies, discotheques, shops, schools, etc.
Different services for public use, such as an audio guided tour or family activities ensure you will enjoy your visit and will not miss out on anything.
So, if you are looking for a moment full of peace and history, escaping from the stress and chaos of the big city, this is the place for you.
Open all week long, from 9h00 to 20h00 (Mondays), 2h00 (Tuesdays -. Thursdays), 4h00 (Fridays), 5h00 (Saturdays), 24h00 (Sundays).
The entrance prices are € 9.50 per adult, € 5.60 for children 4-12 years old, € 6.60 for students.
