The Poble Espanyol is a one-of-a-kind museum on Barcelona's famed Montjuic hill: made up of 117 buildings, the "museum" is actually a full-sized Iberian village. Filled with great spots to indulge in the local gastronomy, here are our recommendations!
Hidden away, this gem of a restaurant is absolutely worth seeking out. Tapes Tapas is one of those rare spots where you can enjoy exquisite tapas without breaking the bank.
The famous El Tablao de Carmen hosts some of the most amazing flamenco shows in Barcelona. Insider's tip: book a table downstairs, you'll have a much better view of the dancers!
Looking for a no-frills yet delicious traditional meal at a reasonable price? Then La Font de Prades is the place for you. The charming outside area is ideal for balmy evenings.
At the top of the village, there's a large and beautiful picnic area, offering an idyllic spot for families to enjoy an open-air meal in the shade of the pine trees.
Picnics are allowed throughout the village, so you can also enjoy a snack in one of the many picturesque squares, such as the large Plaza Mayor or the quaint Plaza de la Fuente.
Though a visit to the Poble Espanyol is delightful on any sunny day, it's especially worth it during the summer months thanks to the many outdoor concerts and events. The outdoor cinema is also open in the summer – the perfect cap to a day of walking and discovery.
Make sure to check out the 40 or so artisans throughout the village, many of whom will exhibit their craft for your enjoyment. The glass blower is particularly popular.

What People Are Saying About Poble Espanyol
Great way to spend the first day and plan where you want to go back to visit and spend more time. The commentary also is helpful so you know about sights you are seeing.
Worst part was the queues to get back on the bus after hopping off at the more popular destinations.
Information about the route in the map is clear. But information about the schedule we need to choose to entrance to Sagrada Familia and Park Guëll not really clear. It is lucky that we realized that spare time to entrance to both places only 15 minutes and can change the time for Park Guëll.
Had a two day pass so did the red & blue tours on day one then got off at our points of interest on 2nd day
The hoo on hop off tour was fantastic introduction to Barcelona and many fabulous & historic places to see. I would highly recommeb this tour to everyone who's thinking abour it.
