The Spanish Village, or Poble Espanyol, is a charming mock village originally built for the 1929 International Exhibition, and has been maintained as a kind of tourist town for shopping and dining. Considered an “open-air museum of architecture,” the Poble features replicas of 117 buildings, streets and squares from throughout Spain. The village focuses on traditional craft- making, with artisans at work creating glass, paintings, ceramics, embroidery and other handmade items in dozens of workshops onsite. The village has a fair assortment of restaurants, art galleries, shops and evening entertainment (make reservations at one of the restaurants for free entrance.) Weekends are all about kids, with interactive workshops and easy arts activities. The Spanish Village is a nice destination for families who are looking for slower paced, less-demanding activities for the day.
