Poble Espanyol is a unique complex based on the recreation of 117 buildings on a true-size scale from different parts of Spain. A peaceful and pleasant stroll through the complex will allow you to see the varied architectural heritage of the Peninsula, ranging from the Andalusian quarter to Catalan Romanesque monastic architecture….while having a free drink (ticket available in your entry badge).
The complex is divided into five main zones that correspond to the areas of Spain, with a series of different basic characteristics in terms of their landscape, relief, vegetation, culture, traditions, architecture or gastronomy, among others. Based on these criteria, the territorial design of the complex is formed by the following areas: North, South, Centre, Mediterranean and the Way of St. James.
