Back in the 1920s, Poble Espanyol was nothing more than an idea. Between 1927 and 1928, four men undertook journeys around Spain to collect the information and inspiration needed to recreate the architectural tradition of Spanish villages (pobles).

Architects Ramón Reventós and Francesc Folguera, draftsman Xavier Nogués and painter Miquel Utrillo brought home photographs, letters, and various drawings that would be key to the chosen architectural characteristics you can still see today at Poble Espanyol.

A Photographic Journey: The Construction of Poble Espanyol allows you to discover the thought process that went into building an open-air architectural museum that's made up of Romanesque, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, and Baroque-style buildings.

Poble Espanyol

4.4 / 5 (324 reviews)

Poble Espanyol is a museum that feels like an actual village. Built in 1929 for a world exhibition, it’s a lifesize replica of a Spanish town that features building styles from all regions of Spain. There are 117 buildings in total, and today these make up a beautiful cluster of restaurants and workshops that reflect the many diverse lifestyles, cuisines, and cultures of traditional Spain.

Take a nice stroll through, have some tapas and peruse the Spanish arts and crafts shops.

The Sagrada Familia is the magnum opus of the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The cathedral was the finale to his incredible Modernist career, and it has been under continuous construction since 1882. Over time, the so-called 'architect of God' dropped all his other work so that he could focus exclusively on this project, which he did until his untimely death in 1926. The Sagrada Familia is due to be finished in 2026, on the 100th anniversary of Gaudí's death. By that time, the construction of the Sagrada Familia will have taken 144 years.

Another masterpiece by Gaudí built from 1905-10 and commissioned by the wealthy Pere Milà. This building was designed to be used as a fashionable home for the Milà family and as an office block. The original name of the house was Casa Milà, however the building is better known for its name La Pedrera (The Quarry) that refers to the uneven gray stone facade, which ripples around the corner of Carrer de Provença.
