Barcelona is known for its grand architecture, and this museum is the place to see it all. Poble Espanyol is an open-air museum that was built in 1929 as part of the International Exhibition. It was created as an entire village using architectural styles from all over Spain. Originally, it was supposed to have been torn down after six months, but it has survived much longer than that because of its cultural value. Although no one lives in this village, it is populated during the day by artisans who show visitors how to make handicrafts. A variety of tapestries, ceramics and jewelry can be purchased, or you can learn about the art of glass blowing and hand embroidery. On-site restaurants and cafes complete the experience.
