We are back and I finally had time to work through my pictures and document parts of our amazing trip and visits. As I mentioned last time, this post is all about Poble Español and I highly recommend you visit it for a unique and unforgettable experience.
The Poble Español, or Spanish Village, is one of the Barcelona's most popular visitor attractions: a unique combination of architecture, contemporary art, traditional crafts, shops and gastronomy, in a pleasant setting free of traffic and noise. Situated in one of Barcelona's most iconic areas, just a short distance away from the Montjuïc Fountains, the Poble Español was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition and resembles an actual village with replicas of 117 buildings from different Spanish regions. You'll find a typical Andalusian quarter, a section of the Way of Saint James and examples of Romanesque monastic architecture, among others.
The village is also a unique place to shop, with more than 20 crafts workshops that open every day so you can see the craftspeople working on unique pieces of pottery, glass, leather and jewellery.
