Poble Espanyol

Poble Espanyol
  • West Route

The Poble Espanyol ("Spanish village"), a work of architecture created for the International Exposition of 1929, was designed to be temporary and demolished after the Exhibition. Nevertheless, its popularity meant that it was conserved. It is a huge "collage" of Spanish architecture, spread across the 117 buildings it is home to: crafts workshops, shops and restaurants. The entrance is an exact reproduction of the gates of Ávila's city walls and its other buildings are reproductions of emblematic constructions of other Spanish towns and cities.
