More of Montjuic... The Poble Espanyol de Montjuic
In Montjuic there are more things to see. The Poble Espanyol de Montjuic is another popular destination. The Poble Espanyol (Spanish Village) was built in 1929 during the International Exhibition in Barcelona. The village has an area of 49,000 m2.
The goal was to show the main features of all the people of the peninsula. 117 Buildings, streets and squares were reproduced to scale. The village had an expiration date because it only had to last the duration of the Exhibition. But because of its huge success it was preserved and has survived the test of time so today we can still enjoy its undenyable charm.
In the village there are more than forty craft workshops where you can learn the ancient secrets of several disciplines. The town has been declared a 'Zona de Interés Artesanal' by the Generalitat de Catalunya. The Foundation Fran Daurel, where you can see contemporary art through the exhibition of its permanent collection, is located in the village. It includes more than 300 works. Significant detail of this collection is that all the works belong to artists with a high profile in the last 50 years such as Picasso, Dalí and Miró, among a total of 80 different authors.
