In Barcelona alone it is possible to get to know and visit 15 regions of the country by walking just a few streets in Poble Espanyol.
It is a spectacular open-air architectural museum built in 1929 and located on the mountain of Montjuic. It was built on the occasion of the International Exposition that was held the same year of its construction; and it was an idea of the Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, an idea that he himself promoted, promoted and materialized thanks to the help and participation of the architects Feancesc Rolvera and Ramón Reventós and the artists Xavier Nogués and Miquel Utrillo.
A walk through Poble Espanyol allows you to discover various buildings, squares and streets reproduced to scale and representing different cities and corners of the country. Specifically, it has 15 buildings belonging to different autonomous communities.
The truth is that the museum was originally scheduled to last about 6 months. However, the success of this museum/village in the middle of the city, which houses the magic of an entire country, has been such that it has been preserved to this day.
Undoubtedly, Poble Espanyol should be on your agenda of interesting visits if you visit Barcelona.
