One of the most famous points of interest on Montjuïc is the Poble Espanyol. The so-called "Spanish Village" was built for the 1929 International Exhibition to show off models of the architecture specific to each region in Spain.
Visitors ambling through the mixed-and-matched village will find themselves one minute walking down a street characteristic of the Basque region, and the next, standing before a home reminiscent of the Andalucian style. Also included are copies of Galician and Castilian architecture and, of course, Catalan dwellings.
Filling these buildings are various craft shops left over from the International Exhibition that are still churning out keepsake crafts. There are also several bars, cafes and shops throughout to quench every thirst, appetite and need for a souvenir.
See everything from glass blowing to weaving in the craft shops of Poble Espanyol. Artisans working in every medium imaginable are drawn to this space as somewhere not only to showcase their art but to create it as well. There are a series of exhibition spaces throughout the village that host temporary exhibits, in addition to the Fran Daurel Foundation, which displays a permanent collection of over 300 works by international artists.
