The Poble Espanyol was built in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition as the pavilion dedicated to art. Right from the start, it was conceived as a real “village” in the heart of a city. The aim was to give an idea of what might be an “ideal model” of an Iberian village that would bring together all the characteristics of all peninsular villages.
This is why 117 buildings, streets and squares from all around Spain were reproduced to scale.
The selection of buildings to be reproduced was made in order to create a global and harmonious composition to enable the visitor to discover the architectonic diversity of Spain while enjoying a pleasant walk in a real village.
